Does This Amount of Swelling Look Normal After Lipodissolve? (photo)

Why do they call this a "lunchtime" procedure if you are so swollen you cannot go out for a few days without people saying "WHAT the HECK happened to your face?"

Swelling from Lipdissolve

No, this is absolutely NOT a normal amount of swelling at all. You need to return to the injector for an evaluation. I have injected mesotherapy/lipodissolve for years and have never seen anything like this. I think you are having a severe reaction to something in the lipodissolve or a possible other infection. You need to be evaluated asap by a physician.
