Abstract: Augmentation material used in plastic surgery such as facelift procedures can be radiopaque and thus become visible on extra- and intraoral radiographs. These objects may obscure anatomical structures and mask critical findings, therefore leading to potential misinterpretation of otherwise successful images. The present report describes a case in which the radiographic intra- and extraoral data are partly masked by a superimposed radiopaque mesh, which was suspected to originate from a facelift procedure. A gold thread lift was confirmed by the plastic surgeon.
