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 got my lips done with Meghan and I had the best experience. 10/10! I was really nervous for the pain and had a lot of anxiety beforehand because I hate needles but Meghan and Cassy made the appointment really easy for me . It didnt hurt as bad as I thought and I am really happy with the whole experience and the way my lips look! The numbing cream is great and they had a little vibrating stick tool thingy on my face to distract me from the pain it was nice. I will be referring all my friends and def be back for some botox soon😇😇

I can only say good things about Dr. Watt and his staff. After having a couple consults with other doctors and almost deciding not to have the procedure, a friend of mine recommended Dr. Watt. After doing some research and going in for a consult I decided Dr. Watt was the man. I went in for a breast aug and a little lipo and could not be happier with the results! Today is one month and one day post op and I'm feeling great and looking AMAZING!! All I can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH to Dr. Watt and his entire team. The whole staff is incredibly nice and do all they can to make you as comfortable as possible. Thanks again guys!!
