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.
