A rhinoplasty is a procedure designed to reshape the nose. People seek rhinoplasty for several reasons. Some are unhappy with bumps or irregularities of the dorsum of the nose. Others feel that their nose is too wide or large for their face. For still others, they are unhappy with the tip of the nose, and may feel it is too bulbous or boxy, or droops downward too much. Whatever the reasons, visit Dr. Mitchell for a free consultation to see if rhinoplasty may be right for you.

Rhinoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Incisions are made within the nostrils as well as a single, small incision across the columella, the skin that lies underneath your nose between your nostrils. Through these incisions, the nasal skin is elevated and the underlying cartilage and bone is exposed.

From here, Dr. Mitchell uses a variety of techniques to alter and reshape this nasal framework in order to produce the results you desire. Recovery takes approximately two to three weeks. A lightweight splint is applied after surgery to protect the new shape. The splint is removed within a week, along with the external sutures along the columella. Swelling and bruising around the eyes may be present, and typically resolves within a few weeks.

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.
