How long should swelling last after subcision & filler?

Had sub & filler done 4 days ago and my cheeks are still quite swollen, and tender (but not painful). Will this continue to go down? Or is it the filler making my face look fat?

It can vary on some factors. i .e. how aggressive the subcision was, your healing time, reaction to treatment, etc.  For me personally, Rullan performed my sub, and his is quite aggressive.  I also received the Kenalog injection and I was still swollen about 4-5 days after.  It dramatically went down after the initial 24-48 hours though.  You will also still have some microswelling several days after.
