Be patient and stay calm. Five days after injection with Bellafill is too soon to judge the results. With time the "puffy" areas should subside and you should see substantial improvement of the jaw area. The bump may be due to a small collection of blood under the skin due to trauma from the injection and should resolve. Most importantly speak with your doctor about your concerns.
5 days is way to soon to panic. If possible give it some time to smooth and settle. You are also still very swollen from the treatment.
Bellafill Just One Week After Injection
Bellafill or Artefill, like all fillers, causes trauma and
that results in swelling, bruising, lumps and bumps that you can fell but
usually not see as well as tissue distortion.
All of these problems will settle.
In fact, the adverse events reported in the 5 year study for Bellafill,
showed no persistent problems at the end.
Of course we do not want to wait 5 years and I can tell you that when
these problems are seen after a Bellafill injection, they are almost always
gone at 3 months without any intervention.
Many injectors are quick to treat these problems with things like excision
or steroids but I can tell you from 9 years of using Bellafill almost daily, 99
% of these problems will settle on their own if given a chance. In addition, as a medical consultant for the
makers of the product who reviews patient problems that are submitted to them,
these problems are usually injector error.
Bellafill gives remarkable results in the right hands. One week is too early to tell what your
results will be, but from what I see, I believe you will like them but you have
to be patient, its only been a week!
Because it lasts so long, you should be aware of the risks
and benefits of these types of fillers.
I have added a video that may help you.
I hope that helps.

Quite a possibility. Our office specializes in the removal of permanent fillers from soft tissue. Many patients who have Bellafill may not be candidates for surgical removal.
