World Amazing Stuff: Nose on forehead

Nose on forehead

Chinese Doctors have grown a new nose on a man's forehead.  Plastic surgeons say such transplants are not anything new.

Xiaolin, 22 years old man from Fuzhou China met in a car accident and suffered permanent damage to the cartilage in his nose through infection. Nine months ago, doctors decided to make a new nose on his forehead.

Dr. Patrick Byrne, the director of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Johns Hopkins says, such surgeries are not as odd as they might seem.

The patient lost part of his nose in an accident in August 2012 and did not immediately have any reconstruction surgery because he couldn't afford it. An infection later ate away much of his nose cartilage.
