Overfilled with Bellafill
5 days is a bit soon to expect swelling from Bellafill to go away especially if done with traditional needles. With blunt cannulas, swelling can still last 2-3 days. It's possible you have a bruise and if so, it could take 2-6 weeks for it to resolve. Be patient and wait at least 2 weeks and see if the swelling is gradually improving. As the bovine collagen gets replaced by your own collagen typically the result is the same as with the bovine collagen.
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.

Bellafill Just One Week After Injection
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.
