Dr. Ronald Finger, a board-certified plastic surgeon, is a founding father of the coastal region's cosmetic-surgery business. He opened the first outpatient surgery center and medical spa in the area, performed the first liposuction procedure in Georgia, and developed one of the first doctor-created lines of skincare products. He still works to make Finger & Associates Plastic Surgery Center as renowned as it was when it first opened, beautifying bodies and faces with lifts and tucks as well as less invasive laser procedures and anti-aging treatments. Dr. Finger doesn't just serve the aesthetic needs of women; he has made appearances on the WTOC 11 midmorning show heralding the med-spa options available for men and pandas.
Specializing in laser-based procedures, Tri-County Laser Center turns its multipurpose, concentrated light beam against a wide range of cosmetic and anti-aging issues. Its skin-rejuvenation treatments use intense pulsed light to eradicate blemishes beneath the skin's surface and reverse sun damage, which happens to the sun after it fights the earth. Staffers also render a refirme skin-tightening service to improve the look of sagging jowls. The hallmark of their treatments is laser tattoo removal, which uses blasts of the light to break down pigment safely and noninvasively. They also wield their laser to purge spider veins across the body without using painful injections.
Beyond boasting a national research award from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and receiving invitations to lecture on the national circuit, Dr. Thomas Funcik holds the prestigious honor of having been chosen by several major pharmaceutical companies to teach the age-reversing techniques of Botox, Dysport, Restylane, and Sculptra to other doctors. Excelling in reconstructive surgery for the nose, face, eyes, and scalp, he also helps faces to avoid the knife with cosmetic skin treatments, including injections, which are personally performed by Dr. Funcik, that fill out fine lines and help to mask scars and chemical peels that use alpha-hydroxy acids to shed damaged skin cells and restore the skin's original childish sense of wonderment. Dr. Funcik is double board-certified and also serves as an assistant professor.
Voted Best Plastic Surgeon by the readers of Charleston City Paper, Dr. Jack Hensel Jr. works alongside medical specialists to improve the body's health and appearance. Body-contouring treatments and weight-loss programs diminish fat and enhance curves, helping women to achieve hourglass or farfalle proportions. Injections of Botox and dermal fillers erase signs of aging but allow patients to keep their memories, and teeth-whitening procedures brighten up biters. In time, laser hair-removal sessions eliminate the need for shaving or waxing. The center promises a high standard of care regardless of the treatment, staying abreast of the latest technologies and ethical standards when helping women to achieve their desired aesthetic.
At Miller Dental Group, Savannah natives Dr. Robert B. Miller & Dr. Jan Cossar help patients take charge of their own dental destinies by keeping them informed about their current conditions and educated about their options for treatment. To do so accurately,the staff employs digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, keeping track of the ins and outs of each tooth, revealing the extent of decay, and probing the depth of cavities.
Once patients make an informed decision about how to proceed, Dr. Miller & Dr. Jan keep them comfortable throughout treatments such as dental implants, composite fillings, and root canals. Each treatment room contains a television to keep patients' minds occupied.
For Dr. Karen Cooper, cosmetic dentistry is more than just outfitting mouths with veneers and implants: it's designing a smile that truly complements patients' features. This passion is why she meets with each patient personally, carefully charting their facial features and dental goals to design a plan just for them. This may involve minor tweaking such as a teeth-whitening treatment, or a major overhaul with a full-mouth restoration or a Mona Lisa smile transplant. Whatever the treatment, her staff doles out the latest technology—including Invisalign and Cerec one-day crowns—and pampers clients with warm blankets, DVDs, and paraffin treatments.
