In China, a man had a new nose grown on his forehead.
The man, who has only been identified as Xiaolian, 22, had the surgery to create a replacement for his original nose which was severely infected and deformed.
The surgery was carried out at a hospital in Fuzhou, Fujian province.
Xiaolian damaged his nose in a traffic accident in August 2012 but failed to seek treatment. Because of this, an infection corroded the cartilage leaving the surgeons unable to restore it.
The doctors had no choice but to grow Xiaolian a new nose, and then to transplant it in place of his damaged one.
The new nose was created by placing a skin tissue expander onto Xiaolian’s forehead. This was cut into the shape of a nose and was supported by cartilage taken from his ribs.
Surgeons said that the nose has developed well and that the transplant surgery will be done soon.
