Total Freak Out: Doctors Grow Man’s New Nose on His Forehead
How do you replace a nose a man has lost the majority of due to infection?
You grow another one on his forehead of course!
A Chinese man whose nose was damaged by infection is receiving groundbreaking treatment by his doctors, who are "growing" a second one on his forehead. The 22-year-old patient had his nose damaged permanently from an infection he suffered following a car accident. His doctors decided the only way to reconstruct his nose was to surgically form a new one on his forehead, where it will match the tissue of his face. Tissue expanders were placed under the skin and then cut to resemble a nose. According to news reports, doctors expect to implant the new nose soon.
