New nose grown by surgeons to replace original one

An image of Xiaolin, 22 from China growing a replacement nose from his forehead. Injured in a car accident in August, an infection to his nose corroded the cartilage, making it impossible for surgeons to fix it leaving no alternative but to grow a new nose for replacement.

The new nose is 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. The surgeons said that the new nose is in good shape and the transplant surgery could be performed soon, local media reported
