PET Imaging Science Center, Division of Nuclear Medicine, Department of Radiology, Keck Medical Center of USC, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

We present 4 cases of cosmetic-related changes on 18F-FDG PET/CT. These cases represent post-treatment changes from facial juvederm injection, silicone injection in the chest wall and gluteal areas, paraffin injection in the gluteal region, and liposuction. Recognition of cosmetic-related changes and their appearance on PET and CT will help to avoid potential false-positive interpretations.
