Nose Grown on Forehead

A Chinese man has a new nose grown on his forehead after a car accident, talk about a nose job.

Xiaolian, 22-years old had the treatment to create a replacement for his original nose which was infected and deformed after he failed to seek medical help from his nose injury following the accident.

In August 2012, Xiaolian was involved in a car accident that caused severe nasal trauma to his nose. The injury went untreated and an infection corroded his nasal cartilage, which left surgeons unable to repair or reconstruct it.

That’s when Doctors decided to “grow” a new nose using Xiaolian’s forehead, a practice that’s never before performed. Doctors used a tissue expander on the man’s forehead and took cartilage from his rips to shape a new nose.

According to local media, the new nose is in good condition and will be ready for transplant onto Xiaolian’s face soon.

“We have gone through the hardest step and now it is not difficult to carry out transplant surgery,” said Guo Zhihui, Director of Plastic Surgery Department of Xiehe Hospital affiliated with Fujian Medical University.

Xiaolian is expected to return to normal life after the transplant surgery is completed.
