Xiaolian Grows Nose on Forehead: Image via ReutersBazaar images have been emerged of a Chinese man who has grown a new, replacement nose on his forehead.

Xiaolian, a 22-year-old, underwent treatment at a hospital in Fuzhou in Fujian province to create a replacement nose after his original became infected as a result of an auto accident in 2012.

Xiaolian failed to seek medical treatment in the aftermath of the accident, allowing a serious infection, causing his nose cartilage to corrode, surgeons were unable to fix the original nose.

This odd alternative has been grown by placing a skin tissue expander onto Xiaolian’s forehead, sculpting it into the shape of a nose, transplanting cartilage from the man’s ribs ::::

Surgeons say the new nose is in good shape and the transplant surgery is expected to be performed soon.
