In brief: Not too long
A breast ultrasound usually only takes between 20-40 minutes, but is somewhat operator dependent.
An experienced ultrasonographer can be fairly rapid. However it is more important for them to be thorough and experienced rather than quick.

In brief: It varries
A focused breast ultrasound for a single palpable lump may only take a few short minutes.
A more comprehensive evaluation for other abnormalities may take much longer from 5 to 30 minutes or so. The larger breast size also makes the study harder and longer to perform. So the duration of breast ultrasound depends on many factors.
