Doctors have grown a Chinese man a new nose... on his forehead!

Xiaolian, the patient, had his nose damaged from an infection following a car accident. His doctors decided the only way to reconstruct his nose was to surgically form a new one on the 22-year-old's forehead.

Who thinks of these things!  There's another reason I'm not a doctor!


The nose was built on his forehead because the skin around his nose opening was too damaged.  They put skin stretching devices into his forehead and the implant will be ready to move to it's place soon.  Once it's in the middle of his face, where it belongs, it will be a working, breathing nose - if all goes well!
