Man grows a second nose on his forehead
Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.
A man in China, is growing a new nose on his forehead.
The man, who has only been named as Xiaolian, had the treatment to create a replacement for his original nose which became infected and deformed after he injured it in a traffic accident in 2012.
Infection damaged the cartilage of the nose, leaving it impossible to be repaired.
Surgeons were left with no choice, but to grow a new nose on the forehead of the 22 year old, and then, after 9 months, transplant it in place of his old one.
The nose was made from cartilage from the man's rib, and multiple skin grafts.
