Double chin
A double chin is a layer of subcutaneous fat around the neck that sags down and creates a wrinkle, making the owner appear to have a second chin. It is most common on people who are elderly or obese. A person of average weight can bear a double chin as well, depending on their bone structure and amount of loose skin. It is more visible when the bottom jaw is lowered or the head is tilted down.
