That really is a nose job! Chinese man has new nose grown on his FOREHEAD to replace the original which was damaged in a car crash

  • Failed to get treatment so it became infected and cartilage was damaged
  • Surgeons were unable to repair it so created a new nose on his forehead
  • It was made using cartilage from his ribs and a skin tissue expander
  • Surgeons are hoping to carry out transplant surgery to put it in place of his old nose soon
A Chinese man has had a new nose grown on his forehead.

Xiaolian, 22, had a new nose grown on his forehead after his original one was irreparably damaged in a traffic accident. The new nose was sculpted from cartilage taken from his ribs

The man, who has only been named as Xiaolian, had the treatment to create a replacement for his original nose which was infected and deformed.

 Xiaolian, 22, had a new nose grown on his forehead after his original one was irreparably damaged in a traffic accident. The new nose was sculpted from cartilage taken from his ribs.

The procedure was carried out at a hospital in Fuzhou, Fujian province.

The 22-year-old damaged his nose in a traffic accident in August 2012 but failed to seek treatment.

As a result, an infection corroded the cartilage leaving the surgeons unable to repair it.
They were left with no choice but to grow him a new nose and then to transplant it in place of his damaged one.
