Man Grows Nose on Forehead

September 26, 2013


A Chinese man whose nose was left deformed in a car crash has grown a new one on his forehead.

The 22-year-old known only as Xialian was involved in car accident last year, but failed to seek treatment.

As a result, his nose became infected leaving doctors unable to repair it.

Instead, surgeons went with Plan B: to grow a new one.

By using cartilage from Xialian’s ribs, doctors inserted a “tissue expander” cut into the shape of a nose onto his forehead, and then left it to grow for a period of nine months.

Surgeons say transplant surgery will be carried out soon to remove the “nose” from his forehead and re-position it where it belongs on the middle of his face.

    The current position appears to be a great innovation.

    °Runny noses no longer a bother, it flows back
    °Savings on tissues
    °Snoring relief
    °Flies easier to expel
    °Romantic- nose doesn’t interfere with kissing
    °Hygienic moustache- not clogged with snot

    All in all, a great innovation, I’m now considering having mine repositioned.
