Fail of the Day: Chinese Man Grows Nose on His Forehead

A man in Fuzhou, China had to have a new nose grown on his face, says Reuters. The man neglected an injury to his biological nose after a traffic accident in August 2012, so doctors had to grow a new nose on his face to replace the damaged cartilage in the old one.

The nose was grown by replacing a skin tissue expander on the man’s forehead, cutting it into the shape of a nose and planting a cartilage taken from his ribs. Doctors say the surgery to transplant it will take place soon.

So, once the surgery is over does this mean they’ll cut the new nose off? Will he then have a scar on his forehead?

This all sounds extremely painful. This is why people should just go to the doctor right away.

      @google-f1870294a7d589babedb6c0d2c3f8fe2:disqus I’m sorry, are you a doctor? I think the doctors involved knew what they were doing and perhaps given the nature procedure it needed to be in a place that would be less prone to being bumped in to or banged up against on a daily basis – guess it would be kind of silly to replace his original nose with a broken one…

    As usual this site does no research into what it reports. If they had taken the time to look this up rather than hype it, someone would’ve known that this is an acceptable practice done worldwide. But five min of research is too much like right and too much work.

      Yeah, illseed makes it seem like some crazy new painful science experiment, when in reality this is how they repair appendages a lot.
