Dr. Ed Pittman - Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Ed Pittman spent his formative years in Athens, Georgia. After completing studies at Athens Academy and the University of Georgia, he attended the Medical College of Georgia where he was inducted into the Medical Honor Society, Alpha Omega Alpha, and received the Merck Manual Award for Academic Excellence. Next followed a full General Surgery Residency at Wake Forest University Medical Center.

 Dr. Pittman was then chosen for a Plastic Surgery Residency at the prestigious University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. Upon graduation, he was appointed Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery, educating upcoming Plastic Surgeons. 

Dr. Pittman has spoken at both National and International Plastic Surgery meetings on topics ranging from breast augmentation to cosmetic facial surgery. He has published numerous articles in the Plastic Surgery literature.

A dream was fulfilled when Dr. Pittman returned to Athens in 1992 and opened his own private practice. Continually striving for excellence and optimal patient care, he founded Pittman Plastic Surgery, P.C. in 2001. This provided the area with the largest state-of-the-art AAAHC-Certified outpatient surgery facility devoted strictly to Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery.

I am so fortunate to do what I truly love in life, and that is to help people feel better about themselves.

From Dr. Pittman's Patients

“I came in very depressed due to the fact of excess skin. I was afraid to have a tummy tuck, but after speaking with the nurses and Dr. Pittman, I was ready and excited to get this procedure done. 

Having the tummy tuck has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The staff and Dr. Pittman are so caring and very professional. I would recommend to ANYONE!”

“Extraordinary experience from the start to the finish with the Dr and staff. Dr. Pittman wants to make you look even better than you want yourself to look after surgery. He definitely accomplished these goals impeccably with me, and I certainly appreciate that. 

( I had breast implants/revision, & breast lift using new ” internal bra” procedure). I just love it….and I was a complicated case since I’m not very muscular & am pretty thin.”

“Dr. Pittman is just amazing. I am so happy that I made the decision to go with him. Not saying anyone else wouldn’t have done a good job, but I just can’t believe how good I look. 

I was in the dressing room yesterday trying on some things and I just busted out crying. It is just the most amazing feeling. To try something on and sit down and not have that nasty, disgusting over hang of skin.”
