FDA to Approve Injection That Dissolves Fat Under Your Double Chin

The FDA advisory panel has unanimously recommended approval of an injectable drug for treating double chins. The drug, deoxycholic acid or ATX 101, dissolves the fat under the chin. The procedure is a less invasive, lower cost alternative to plastic surgery. (This new shot takes about 5 minutes.) The current options for reducing double chins include neck lifts and liposuction, which can cost $800 to $2,500. The FDA's final decision is expected in May and once its approved, it will be available a few months later. (The FDA usually follows the recommendations of its advisory panels.)
