Chinese Doctors Grow New Nose On Man's Forehead

Absolutely nothing to do with Geraldton, but...

A new nose has been grown on a man’s forehead in China, according to Reuters.

Xiaolian, the man in question, had injury to his nose after a traffic accident in August 2012 which was neglected and became infected. Doctors grew a new nose to replace the damaged cartilage in the old.

According to Reuters, the nose was grown by placing a skin tissue expander onto Xiaolian’s forehead, cutting it into the shape of a nose and planting a cartilage taken from his ribs. Doctors say the nose is in good shape and the surgery to transplant it should take place soon.
