A Pittsburgh Plastic Surgery First, with CoolSmooth Treatment

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

Another first for Pittsburgh is here!

We’re very excited to announce, the office of Pittsburgh plastic surgeon Dr. Leo McCafferty has become the first cosmetic surgery practice in the region to offer the CoolSmooth treatment for that stubborn fat (sometimes referred to as “saddle bags”) on the outer thigh.

Now FDA approved, this treatment is an element of the CoolSculpting procedure, in which the fat cells are actually cooled, causing them to gradually die and fade away.

According to Dr. McCafferty’s clinical esthetician Jennifer Derry, “The treatment usually results in a 20 to 30 percent fat reduction. Further, there is no down time and no incision.”

The treatment lasts about two hours and, depending on the patient, may take more than one treatment.

While the procedure is generally targeted to women, it is also available for men.

“CoolSculpting itself,” noted Dr. McCafferty, “has been in use for the past two years and has been geared to treat love handles and the abdomen in both women and men. Clients, in general, have been thrilled with the results.”
