Pittman Plastic Surgery First Practice in Athens to Offer CoolSculpting® Non-Surgical Fat Reduction

CoolSculpting Arrives in Athens

Pittman Plastic Surgery now offers FDA-Cleared CoolSculpting® for fat reduction of the abdomen and flanks without surgery or downtime

ATHENS, GA, October 31, 2012 – Providing cosmetic surgery patients with superior liposuction and body contouring results since 1992, the physicians of Pittman Plastic Surgery are the first to offer Athens-area patients the latest non-surgical fat reduction technology: CoolSculpting®.

The Athens CoolSculpting® treatment consists of the machine’s applicator sandwiching the targeted tissue between two metal plates and applying cold temperature. The process takes only an hour per treatment area and does not require any anesthesia. Patients can comfortably relax, work on their computer, or read a book during the treatment and return immediately to their regular activities following their appointment.

Founder of Pittman Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ed Pittman shares about the technology, “CoolSculpting® is an excellent option for those patients with small amounts of isolated excess fat that develops with age or after having children.  Since it doesn’t require surgery or downtime, it’s a great alternative for patients like busy moms on the go or professionals unable to take the time off required with traditional liposuction or tummy tuck recovery.”

Using extreme cold to freeze fat cells which the body then expels through natural lymphatic filtration, a process known as Cryolipolysis™, CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for fat reduction of the abdomen and flanks in both men and women. Most CoolSculpting® patients notice results after just one, hour-long treatment with an average of 20% fat reduction in the treatment area(s) within 2 months following the procedure. Some patients elect to have a second treatment for a larger reduction.


Pittman Plastic Surgery offers cosmetic procedures of the face, breasts, and body to Athens area patients including comprehensive facial rejuvenation, body contouring, and mommy makeover surgery options. Founded in 2001, Pittman Plastic Surgery, P.C. houses the only AAAHC-accredited surgical center devoted exclusively to cosmetic surgery and reconstructive breast procedures. Trained in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Chelsea Venditto and Dr. Ed Pittman are now accepting new patients.
