World-Renown Cosmetic Dermatologist Sets Plan to Open Practice in the Big Apple

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 26, 2009) - Dr. Arnold William Klein, the international authority on minimally invasive aesthetics and renowned for pioneering the cosmetic use of Botox and dermal fillers, has announced that he'll be opening an office in New York City. For over 30 years, Dr. Klein has offered the very best in dermatology and cosmetic surgery from his practice on Roxbury Drive in Beverly Hills, California. His expertise has garnered him recognition as the international father of architectural facial restoration, and the superior techniques he developed for natural-looking soft tissue augmentation are used around the world today.

But it's not just his knowledge and expertise that have earned him a list of patients that includes some of Hollywood's biggest stars, Dr. Klein is also dedicated to the highest standards of ethical practice, becoming a vocal advocate for patient safety. Most recently, he took a stand against the industry and the Food and Drug Administration over a popular but potentially dangerous new injectable filler. "The health and satisfaction of my patients is always my top priority," says Dr. Klein. "I hold my practice to the highest standard and do not endorse products that can harm my patients. Dermatology in its top form is art, and the face should be treated that way, with the utmost care."

Not only does Dr. Klein run a very busy prestigious practice, but he's also a Professor of Medicine and Dermatology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and an emeritus attending physician at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. A prolific author, he has published nearly 150 scientific papers in prestigious peer-reviewed journals and has written four medical textbooks and numerous textbook chapters. Throughout his career, Dr. Klein has been deeply involved in philanthropy. He founded the Elizabeth Taylor HIV Clinic at UCLA and with Ms. Taylor, helped bring amFAR (American Foundation for AIDS Research) into existence. Dr. Klein diagnosed some of the very first cases of AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma seen in Los Angeles in the early 1980s. In an article related to AIDS in Africa in the November 2008 issue of L'Uomo Vogue, it was reported that Dr. Klein and the organizations he founded have raised in excess of 274 million dollars for HIV research and care.

Dr. Klein's expertise in dermatology and cosmetic surgery, and the unsurpassed dedication and commitment he offers his patients on the west coast, will soon be available to residents of the Big Apple. For those who know and love Dr. Klein, they can only tell their east coast counterparts that they're in for a big treat. According to one patient who has been with Dr. Klein since 1987, "He has the capacity for friendship, is compassionate and passionate about his work, and he's completely focused on the needs of his patients. He's a real rare bird in the jungle of Beverly Hills."
