We present a 36-year-old female who was seen for initial voluntary screening mammography with a history of breast mesh placement immediately following a voluntary breast reduction surgery at the age of 18 in 1986. As per the patient, the breast mesh was placed according to the Ricardo A. Bustos Technique. There was no palpable abnormality on physical exam. The mammographic evaluation was severely limited by the implanted mesh bilaterally on both craniocaudal (CC) and mediolateral oblique (MLO) views. Further evaluation was recommended with ultrasound. Unfortunately, this too was limited due to severe posterior acoustic shadowing from the mesh material.
