Platysmal Bands in Tampa, FL

Loose and sagging skin at the neck, otherwise known as platysmal bands, is a common reason patients opt for neck lift surgery. Known as a turkey neck, this excess sagging skin can decrease confidence. We utilize advanced techniques at Watt Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to provide you with a smooth, well-defined neck that is void of excess skin. If you're still wondering if a neck lift is right for you, schedule a consultation at our Tampa, FL office. We'll help you choose the best treatment option so you leave with the chiseled jawline and smooth neck you've always wanted.

There are many different approaches to how our team performs a neck lift. We'll evaluate several factors to determine which technique suits your needs. Some of the factors we discuss will include:

  • The current elasticity of the neck
  • The amount of skin present in the neck
  • The type of banding present as a result of muscle separation (platysmal bands)

During the neck lift, a small incision gets made under the chin. The muscles get sutured together to create a foundation for the skin to heal and naturally re-drape. This neck lift treatment may also get combined with laser resurfacing treatments. It is a minimal procedure where we'll provide oral sedation or local anesthesia. The recovery period is generally quick. In cases of severe neck laxity, we may need to take a different approach involving incisions made behind the ears. Learn more about this treatment when you schedule an appointment with our team.

I cannot recommend Dr Watt and his team highly enough. I am now a year postop from my breast augmentation surgery and it has completely changed my life and given me the confidence I've always wanted for myself. Now I am a continued customer and go to Tori as my aesthetician and would highly recommend her to anyone as well. I also now see Jamie for all injections and can honestly say that Dr Watt has put together the most friendly, caring and intelligent team.

Dr. Watt approached my surgery in a way the made me feel comfortable and confident in the end result. I was able to get the support I needed pre & post-surgery. The OR and clinic staff were also fantastic. I’m one month out and already have stellar results from my breast revision. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Over 3 months post op and could not be happier!!! Cannot recommend Dr.Watt enough.

My experience was beyond my expectations at Watt Plastic Surgery. Dr. Girardot is incredible & truly cares about her patients. She takes her time with you during the consult, makes you feel comfortable, and listens to what you want & gives her recommendations based on your breast goals. I was nervous and scared with having a breast reduction & lift but she really made me feel comfortable the day of the surgery & after. The staff was incredible as well. She took her time with measuring out and marking me up the morning of my surgery and my breast look perfect. I highly recommend her to address your needs and concerns for whatever procedures she can preform. Thank you Dr. Girardot for caring and understanding my needs! ❤️

I had a breast augmentation performed by Dr. Girardot. Let me start off by saying Dr. Girardot is AMAZING!! She is highly skilled, knowledgeable, kind and has the best bed side manner (her list can go on!!) I’m so happy with my results, it is exactly what I always imagined them to be. During my initial consultation I felt so confident in Dr. Girardot, she made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. The Watt team is so sweet. They were super helpful pre and post surgery. I can’t thank them enough for following up on me and always answering my questions when I would call in. I will always recommend Dr. Girardot to anyone that is considering plastic surgery. I am forever grateful to have Dr. Girardot as my surgeon. Thank you so much

Had my breast augmentation done here by Dr.Watt and everything went amazing! Still feeling great almost 9 months later. Also got a free 1/2 syringe of lip filler afterwards on the Allē app, done by the incredible Jaime. Just went back for my second round and she never disappoints. Highly recommended if you’re looking for some extra plump in your life :)
