A woman has been left with a square head after she decided to have a cosmetic procedure for chin fat removal. She has shared the shocking results onto TikTok, alongside her parents’ horrified reaction.
A young woman was mocked by family and friends when she decided to get her “face done” and was left with temporary swelling and bruising that resulted in a square-shaped head.
Sofia Marroquin, from Australia, decided to have a treatment called Kybella. This is an FDA-approved treatment that involves a nonsurgical injection technique that attempts to reduce the excess fat from beneath the chin. However, it left the young woman with an extremely swollen and puffy looking face. Her chin, which is usually pointy, was left completely square-shaped.
According to Healthline, common side effects of the procedure involve pain, swelling, redness and numbness.
The 19-year-old shared the unwanted swollen results onto her TikTok page and in the clip 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.”
The first person to see the results of Sofia’s procedure was her dad. In the clip, her dad gasps in disbelief at his daughter’s face.
With his hand to his mouth, he said: “Oh my goodness.”
Meanwhile, his wife and Sophia’s mum reacted in a similar way. She exclaimed her daughter’s name and then her sister came into the room.
Unlike their parents, Sofia’s sister was completely amused by the results and ran around the house in a fit of laughter. In shock, she then dropped to the floor. At this point, her family wasn’t aware that it was swollen temporarily.
However, Sofia’s best friend then approached her front door and then proceeded with caution. She admitted that her friend’s new face left her “scared”.

So far, the TikTok post has racked up over 3.6 million views. Initially, her followers and fans had no idea she had been planning the procedure, which meant when they saw her face they were left both confused and shocked about her newly shaped square head.
As so many began to leave questions in the comments, Sofia decided she would have to address them. She later shared an “explanation” as to why she had the procedure and what it detailed.
She 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.”
Whilst smirking, she explained: “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 then went on to touch her face.
@sof.marroquinReply to @mellgagne here’s an explanation!!
The Aussie has continued to share content involving her square head, which although intended to be humorous has received backlash and negative comments.
Some actually commented that she now resembled cartoon characters including Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story and Lord Farquaad from Shrek.
Surprisingly, the young woman has managed to laugh it off and has responded by saying: “I love squares.”
At this moment in time, Sofia has yet to share the final results of the procedure, as it still remains swollen and puffy.
