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 was so nervous thinking about undergoing surgery that was elective BUT I also knew how unhappy I was with my breasts after breastfeeding two kids. I am in the healthcare field and heard about Dr. Watt on multiple occasions so I knew I had to check him out. From the very first consultation, I felt comfortable and could tell Dr. Watt knew what he was doing. I am 5 weeks post op breast augmentation and I could not be happier! He knew exactly what was right for me and gave me back the confidence I needed after having two babies. 10/10 would recommend!

I didn’t know where to start with plastic surgery and what I wanted done. I did a TON of research and found Watt Plastic surgery a few years ago. I made my appointment for a consultation and first off staff was super friendly and sweet, second, everything was so clean, lastly, I felt safe. Dr. Watt answered all my questions allowed me time to decide without any pressure. After surgery, when I had questions and called the help line, Dr. Watt called me directly! ON A SUNDAY!! That’s better patient care than my kids pediatrician!! Lol! I will ALWAYS go to them with any cosmetic surgery or beauty needs (lip filler, facials, etc.) and they’re also honest. They want you to be happy with your results! I give them a 10 out of 10!!! Recommending family and friends to go!

From the moment I called to schedule a consultation to walking in for that consultation all the way to my 1 month post op appointment, I felt so much love and care from each and every single member of this team. Dr. Watt really listens to you and knows how to give you exactly what you are envisioning. He gave me the confidence I always wanted and I get compliments every single day on my new look. I will ALWAYS recommend Dr. Watt and his team for any cosmetic surgery or medspa treatments.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr.Watt and all of the amazing ladies that work at his practice. My first procedure was back in August (lipo 360) and my second a little less than a week ago (Mommy Makeover with Breast Lift, internal bra and reverse tuck). Both planned for over a year and intentionally done on seperate dates. From my consultation, to pre-op and then surgery day it has been such a warming experience. Every single person at Dr.Watts makes you feel so great about yourself during times when you may not feel that way about yourself. I would reccomend Dr. Watt and his team 1000 times over again. The results are already life changing and I can’t thank Dr.Watt and his amazing team of ladies enough! <3
