Case Discussion

This was an incidental finding in a patient who had imaging for symptoms of sinusitis. On direct questioning, the patient confirmed having had previous procedure for cheek augmentation at a cosmetic clinic. Exact nature of the compound injected was not known to the patient or her GP, but silicone seems to be the likely material.
