The FDA has approved the sale of Kybella, an injectable drug that dissolves fat cells.

Last month, we reported that an FDA panel had recommended approving deoxycholic acid, a new wonder drug that could make sticking your neck out in selfies a thing of the past. Now, it's officially gone through, and deoxycholic acid (renamed the much sexier "Kybella") will go on sale starting in June.

Kybella is the first ever non-surgical solution to a double chin. It works by dissolving the membranes around fat cells, so the contents are reabsorbed into the body. All it takes is for your dermatologist to make a series of small injections under your chin. It takes five minutes, heals in days, and requires no bandages. Side effects include swelling, bruising, and temporary numbness.
