An otoplasty is an outpatient procedure for people with a condition called prominent ears. These are ears that protrude too far outward when viewed from the front. People with this condition may have social anxiety or embarrassment. This can negatively affect one’s confidence and self-image.
Dr. Mitchell will tailor his operation based on your needs. Recovery is excellent, and most people experience very little pain. For children, it is recommended to wait until the child is at least six years old, as the ear is still growing and premature surgery on the ear can potentially stunt its growth.

In September 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time in my life. Because of treatment I had received 23 years prior, I chose to undergo a double mastectomy with reconstruction. I did some research and visited a couple of surgeons in Lincoln; I actually made an appointment for surgery with one of them. I was also referred to Dr. Cassidy Mitchell. After speaking to him on the phone and meeting with him, I chose to change doctors and have Dr. Mitchell help me with this challenge. Dr. Mitchell was new to Lincoln then, but I felt very confident about how he was approaching my surgery and about his compassion towards me as a woman and patient facing a very difficult surgery. I have never regretted that decision. I am very happy with the results, but most of all, Dr. Mitchell approached the choices, surgery, recovery and reconstruction in a way that made me feel comforted, confident and as though I was in charge. That was important to me at a time when women often feel like their lives have gone completely out of control. I highly recommend him as a surgeon. His work is impeccable. I also have to say my general surgeon, Dr. Carolyn Cody, and the nursing staff at Bryan West Campus was also incredibly supportive. What a team. I am blessed. I’m cancer free, making music with my husband, and moving on with life. Thanks to all of you at Bryan. Thanks, Dr. Mitchell for helping me, for sharing your talent, and treating me with kindness. I’ll never forget it.
