A Chinese man whose nose was severely disfigured following a car accident will soon get a replacementin the form of a nose that has been growing on his forehead.
A video from Chinese television station CCTV shows doctors checking the noses progress on the forehead of a 22-year-old man named Xiaolian at a hospital in Fuzhou located in the Fujian province, Reuters reports.
The man reportedly only got basic medical care after he was involved in a car accident last year. He developed an infection that corroded the cartilage in his nose, which made reconstruction surgery impossible.
Thats when they decided to grow a new one. Doctors placed a tissue expander into the mans forehead that stretched out his skin, fashioning it into the shape of a nose. They then took cartilage from his rib and placed it in his forehead, allowing the skin to grow over the cartilage scaffolding.

um- it looks more like a penis is growing on his forehead- but who am i to say...
If it rains he’ll drown!
It was just a matter of time. Once they can take a toe and transplant it where a thumb once was, anything else is possible!
The doctor nose best. Although, it’s snot what I would want.
Nah. It's China...on the other side of the world. Everything is upside down. Haven't you seen the Warner Brothers cartoons?
Not to be snooty, but I pinged an earlier posting of this story. Of course, you didn’t nose that.
He can scratch his head while picking his nose.
I wonder if things like this will become the norm here when obamacare gets into full swing.
New and improved hair cream...SNOT!
...And now, for something completely different.
A man with nine legs.
“He ran away!”
“Oh, bloody hell!”
It's a good thing his leg wasn't disfigured.
One would think they could grow it somewhere that wasn’t as noticable as the big middle of his forehead. Yes, you want the same skin and no hair and for goodness sake turn it rightside up.
Our dear Jay Carney must have been modded here.The noticeably offset pie hole is supposedly meant to distract from the lies being espoused. Also known as talking out of the side of mouth to an EXTREME. Bless his heart.
This is great news for all those guys who had their penises chopped off.
How about when he takes his shirt off and notices an extra eye looking at him from his shoulder?
Remember that sci-fi flick?
Too bad they didn’t have that technology when Michael Jackson’s nose fell off!
His doctors grew his relacement nose on his forehead, and that was around 1997-1998.
