A 30-year-old female presented with both breast disfigure and pain for 4 years. She had Polyacrylamide injection breast augmentation 5 years ago. Humps were noticed on the chests below the breast folds. Ultrasound revealed larger areas of liquid under the mammary glands extended to the subcutaneous tissue of the chests inferiorly. During the injectable removal surgery around 200ml yellowish opaque gel-like substance was squeezed and sucked out from each breast through the areolar incision.

Nontoxic Polyacrylamide is a polymer form of neurotoxic acrylamide subunits. Unpolymerized acrylamide can be present in very small amounts in the polymerized acrylamide. Polyacrylamide had been legally used as human soft tissue filler for various purpose such as breast augmentation in China from December 1997 to April 2006, affecting more than 300,000 people.
