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 would like to write a review for Meghan Murphy, PA and Cassy B, MA for being incredibly knowledgeable, gentle, caring and kind! Meghan has given me Botox in my forehead area, dissolved my lip filler that I had previously done by someone else… then today she filled my lips again and I couldn’t be more happy with the results and also happy that I found an injector I trust. Meghan, Cassy and everyone at Watt Plastic Surgery is great with 10/10 bedside manner and customer service. Very pleased!

First and foremost, I would give Dr. Watt more than 5 stars if possible. Pre-kids, my breasts were full, perky, and I liked the way they looked. After having children/breastfeeding/pumping, my breast shrank in size and looked deflated. I knew I wanted to have breast augmentation but was nervous that I wouldn’t find the right surgeon to attain the look I wanted. I found Dr. Watt through Lauren West and so happy I did. I looked at the photos on Instagram and his website and knew that he could achieve the look I wanted. I was fortunate to schedule a consultation and even more fortunate that my consultation was moved up. After meeting Dr. Watt and his staff, it was an easy decision to move forward. I had my surgery and was back to work in 3 days. Surgery was quick, post-op relatively painless, and already have seen amazing results 4 weeks post-op. I have referred all of my friends to Dr. Watt and highly recommend for anyone considering breast augmentation. I’m so happy with the result: natural looking, larger breasts that make my body look more proportional.

Worth the wait! I couldn’t be happier with my results or my experience with Dr. Watt and his team. Dr. Watt and his team were incredibly friendly and accommodating from pre op to post op, always answering any questions I had. I plan to return to them for any future procedures! So thankful for such a positive experience and new found confidence thanks to Dr. Watt!
