Sofia Marroquin, 19, from Australia, shared a hilarious clip on TikTok of the moment she revealed her “new look” to her family after undergoing a Kybella treatment to remove excess fat from her chin
Kybella is a popular nonsurgical injection technique used to reduce excess fat beneath the cheeks and jowls.
But in an unfortunate turn of events the treatment made her jaw swell up leaving her with an unusually square face that some have likened to Shrek or Buzz Lightyear.
In the clip, she said: “Yep, so just got some lovely needles into my face. My family has absolutely no idea what I’ve just done and I’m about to get their reaction.”
Up first was her dad who gasped at the sight of his daughter in disbelief.
“Oh my goodness,” he said, with his hand to his mouth, before his wife, Sophia’s mum, reacted in almost exactly the same way.
“Sophia!” she exclaimed, like any shocked mother would, before her sister walked in and reacted in possibly the best way anyone ever could.
After seeing her sister’s new face, she ran through the house in fits of laughter before dropping to the floor in shock – not having any idea what had gone wrong.
Her best friend, however, who approached the front door of Sophia’s family home, proceeded with caution admitting she was “scared” by her new look.
Explaining her new look, Sofia said: “Lots of people have been asking why I made my face look like a rectangle. I didn’t purposefully make my face look like a rectangle.”
She continued: “I got a treatment done called Kybella which removes fat from the lower part of your face. People tend to get it for your double chin but I got it in my jowls area.
“Mine was really fatty covering up my jaw so I just wanted to remove that fat – just a little bit – just to make it look a little better. That’s all.
“It’s still really swollen and really numb, I can’t feel that,” she said touching the sides of her face.
