E. Ronald Finger, M.D.
Dr. E. Ronald Finger was born in Marion, South Carolina. His father was a general surgeon and following the Second World War built his own hospital, which enabled Dr. Finger to begin assisting surgery at age 14. He is a graduate of the Medical University of South Carolina, did his internship at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia and four years of general surgery residency at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. He then entered the U.S. Air Force, at which time he completed his plastic and reconstructive surgery residency at the height of the Vietnam conflict, which yielded vast experience towards some of the techniques utilized today.
Dr. Finger began practicing plastic and reconstructive surgery in Savannah in 1973 and shortly thereafter built the first outpatient plastic surgery operative center in Georgia. Our surgical facility is accredited by AAAASF and licensed as an Ambulatory Surgery Center by the State of Georgia.
Dr. Finger is well known in plastic surgery circles as an innovator of new procedures, which have included:
*Transmalar Subperiosteal midface lift (which he demonstrated at the Universities of California and Wisconsin)
*Transaxillary approach for breast augmentation mammoplasties of which he has performed over 3,000
*Reduction mammoplasties and mastopexies, of which he has presented to various groups and written a chapter within a medical textbook
During his career Dr. Finger has also always been on the leading edge of technology. The following will list some of his advanced techniques:

*Endoscopic procedures, such as:
- Subpectoral transaxillary augmentation mammoplasties

Skin Care Products
Dr. Finger has also had a proactive interest in skin health and has taken great steps to promote this philosophy to his patients. Because of the fact that Dr. Fingers practice is very large he has had the opportunity to use many of the skin care products that are available in the United States today. Many of these products were good and some were excellent, but those that achieved the most beneficial results had the tendency to create too much inflammation, irritation and flaking. In addition, none of the products contained the nutrients and anti-oxidants that Dr. Finger felt necessary for long-term skin health. Since 1996 he has worked with several chemists and created the product New Youth Skin Treatment System. This achieves thicker dermis and epidermis, a better blood supply to the skin, reduces sun damage, equalizes pigmentation, and helps to reduce fine wrinkles, all with minimal irritation and flaking. New Youth also contains ingredients that help prevent the onset of adverse reactions such as acne. The products contain absorbable nutrients such as phyto compounds, vitamins such as A, C, B complexes, powerful antioxidants and other ingredients which allow the cells to maintain maximum health and hydration. The program also allows for some tailoring of the products to the specific needs of the patient based upon skin type and condition.
The New Youth Skin Treatment System and the program has been well accepted by Dr. Fingers patients and those patients of other physicians who have had the opportunity to use the products for their patients.
