Drs. Ed Pittman and Piotr Skowronski now offer 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 lates 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 invites the public to join their Cool Night Out event on Thursday, November 29th from 5pm to 8pm at their 3320 Old Jefferson Rd., Bldg. 100 Athens, GA location. Event attendees will have an opportunity to save on CoolSculpting® treatment, meet with CoolSculpting representatives, and win prizes.
