FDA Approves An Injection To Cure A Double Chin

May 04, 2015 2 min read

Are you tired of worrying about your chin in photos? Tired of craning your neck towards the sky at the sight of a camera? Starting soon, these worries could be a thing of the past. The FDA has approved Kybella, a new drug that can treat moderate to severe fat under the chin. Kybella is a form of synthetically derived deoxyholic acid which the body produces naturally to absorb fats. The Washington Post reports that the treatment will involve 50 injections of the drug in a single session. Patients can receive up to 6 sessions, no less than a month apart. This is the first non invasive treatment for the chin and compared to liposuction, the injections will likely be the safer and cheaper option. Don't get too excited though, this treatment is not without its side effects. Telegraph UK says that Kybella's most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness under the chinalthough more serious side effects could include nerve damage to the jaw. Doctors have expressed concern that Kybella could kill skin cells if administered improperly. Just like any other plastic surgery, this procedure should only be done by a licensed health care professional. “It is important to remember that Kybella is only approved for the treatment of fat occurring below the chin, and it is not known if Kybella is safe or effective for treatment outside of this area,” said Amy Egan, deputy director of the Office of Drug Evaluation III at the FDA, in a statement. Last year, a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that 70 percent of respondents listed "excess fat under the chin/neck" as their primary concern when it came to appearance. These people be thrilled to know that Kybella treatments may be available as soon as June! Does this sound like something you would try?
