Woman Who Was Left With 'Square Head' From Beauty Treatment Shows Off Results
A woman who was left with a 'square head' following a beauty treatment has showed off the results now the swelling has subsided.
Sofia Marroquin, from the Gold Coast in Australia, had a treatment called Kybella, which is designed to melt away fat, but can result in swelling when first administered.
Sofia, 19, ended up going viral after sharing a video of her newly squared-off head on TikTok, quickly racking up millions of views.
In a follow up video she explained: "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.
"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."

But alongside the funny comments, Sofia also got a fair amount of nasty reactions from people with too much time on their hands, who called her 'botched', accused her of having 'body dysmorphia' and told her she looked 'better before'.
She said: "There was a moment in time when it felt like the world was against me.
"Now that more people know that I purposefully didn't want to become a square, I'm getting more love over hate.
"It took one week for the major swelling to subside and from there, my face slowly went back to normal. At three weeks I could already see a difference. It took eight weeks for the full results.
"The treatment destroyed my stubborn fat, I used to be 20kg heavier, and made my face look slimmer.
"Mentally, I feel more confident and relieved. I was so self conscious about it and now I feel at peace because I don't have to think about that problem."
Speaking to LADbible about her new-found viral fame, she said: "I was very surprised, I never expected it. I gained 20,000 followers in three days. I honestly just expected my friends to see it!"
