A new nose has been grown on a man's forehead in Fuzhou, China, according to Reuters.
The man, named Xiaolian , had neglected an injury to his nose after a traffic accident in August 2012. Doctors had no choice but to grow a new nose to replace the damaged cartilage in the old.
According to Reuters, the nose was grown by placing a skin tissue expander onto Xiaolian's forehead, cutting it into the shape of a nose and planting a cartilage taken from his ribs. Doctors say the nose is in good shape and the surgery to transplant it should take place soon.
