Background: Facial rejuvenation using different dermal and subdermal injectable compounds is a popular cosmetic procedure which may pose a diagnostic dilemma to the radiologist. Objectives: To describe the appearance of cosmetic facial fillers on PET-CT. Methods: All PET-CT exams performed between January 2015 and May 2017 in which findings suggestive of prior facial filler procedures was evident and where anamnestic confirmation with the patient was possible were reviewed. Results: We describe five females who had undergone facial filler procedures leading to calcifications around the mouth and nasolabial triangle. Conclusions: Familiarity with the appearance of such cosmetic procedures on PET-CT is of paramount importance in order to avoid misinterpretation of the findings leading to unnecessary apprehension and work-up.
