Dr. Maas’s Bio

Dr. Corey S. Maas is an internationally renowned facial plastic surgeon board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery. After years of studying at prestigious medical institutions, Dr. Maas completed his Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco. His skill and dedication to the craft eventually led him to serve at UCSF as the Chief of the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for over 11 years. In 2001, he left the full-time faculty at UCSF. He founded The Maas Clinic for Aesthetic and Facial Plastic Surgery and The Research Center at The Maas Clinic. He is the Medical Director of The Appearance Care Center, a state-of-the-art medical day spa with the latest technology and skilled nursing staff. His highly successful clinics in the beautiful Pacific Heights district of San Francisco and Lake Tahoe are frequented by patients seeking natural and beautiful results on their journey to looking their best.

Dr. Maas has earned numerous awards and recognitions for his contributions to the facial plastic surgery industry, including the notable Readers’ Choice Award for Best Cosmetic Surgeon by the SF Examiner and SF Weekly and the Sir Harold Delf Gillies Award from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Maas has been featured in newspapers, television broadcasts, and magazines, from San Francisco Medicine and Cosmetic Surgery Times to Vogue and Allure. Dr. Maas is a published author and has authored and co-authored more than 150 articles, written numerous book chapters, and been a principal investor in over 40 clinical trials that have aided in advancing his specialty. Dr. Maas believes facial plastic surgery is both a science and an art. As such, he frequently spends his time in pursuit of improving his artistic ability. You can often find him painting, drawing, and playing the guitar. Dr. Maas is also a pilot and athlete who enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, and golfing with his wife and two sons whenever the opportunity arises.

Facial Plastic Surgery Fellowship Program

Dr. Maas is a Fellowship Director for the Fellowship Program under the auspices of the Educational and Research Foundation for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Fellowship directors are recognized authorities in the teaching and practice of facial plastic surgery. The Fellowship Program is internationally known as the finest post-graduate program for training and educating facial plastic surgeons. Since 1969, the program has helped 1,300+ specialized experts become leaders in plastic surgery, advancing patient care, refining surgical techniques, and developing and educating others about new procedures.

The Fellowship Program Objectives

  • Provide an outstanding academic opportunity for the acquisition of specialized knowledge and skills in facial plastic surgery;
  • Develop trained specialists who will contribute to the ongoing development of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery;
  • Foster development of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery educators, especially in residency programs and
  • Encourage the development of new skills and knowledge in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery through basic research and clinical trials.

All fellows must have completed a residency program in otolaryngology or plastic surgery, which the Accreditation Council approves for Graduate Medical Education, or be board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology or Plastic Surgery.

Dr Maas tells us his career journey

A Word from Dr. Maas

"There is a long, time-honored tradition in medicine of sharing your knowledge with the next generation. After finishing medical school and a medical internship, there are another four to seven years of general post-surgery internship training. Still, there is only so much you can learn from books and articles about medicine, especially regarding surgery. The importance of hand-eye coordination and mechanical-cerebral coordination in surgery cannot be overstated.

I am very proud to have taught for 12 years at UCSF, sharing my knowledge with residents and medical students, and I have worked with fellows for the past 23 years. With all my fellows, outstanding academic credentials are a given. My fellows are fully credentialed at the hospital and surgery centers we use and are either plastic surgery trained or head and neck surgery trained after their medical internship.

They all come to me specifically to learn how to perform facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and research in the field, which is an integral part of advancing our understanding and the science behind what we do. I hope all my fellows become fellowship directors in the future and join me in sharing their knowledge with the next generation. Each fellow brings something new to the practice. Their curiosity, ideas, and questions all challenge me and help me refine my decision-making, helping me become a better surgeon.

As part of their training, my fellows assist in the pre and post-operative care of our patients and assist me in surgery. I must emphasize that they don’t perform the surgery; they only assist as a surgical technician would, learning by watching and assisting me. Every year, I ask my fellows to write a little bio of themselves, talking about where they came from, their academic background, how they knew they wanted to be a doctor, and why they chose to pursue facial plastic surgery, saving a precious snapshot of their goals for posterity."
