SEE crazy picture of man who grew a nose on his forehead
Holy smokes! Science is an amazing thing and we live in an era when doctors can do things that would have been undreamt of before, like grow a nose on your forehead. Yup! In the Fuzhou, Fujian province of China a 22-year-old man named Xiaolian is sporting a newly grown nose on his forehead and it is one of the strangest things I have ever seen. You won't believe the picture.

Why would anyone want to grow a nose on their forehead? Xiaolian was in a traffic accident in August of 2012. After the accident he neglected treatment for his injured nose and an infection corroded the cartilage in his nose making it impossible for doctors to fix it. Doctors didn't give up though, they decided to create a new nose for the young man.
His new nose was grown on his forehead using a skin tissue expander shaped like a nose and cartilage from his ribs. It most certainly looks like a nose, but it's very strange to see it where it is on his face at the moment. Surgeons say his new nose should be ready for transplant soon.
Crazy!!! I'm wondering if he is going to be left with some kind of huge nose-shaped scar on his forehead. Also, I wonder if they had to grow it on his forehead? Couldn't they have grown it somewhere less noticeable like his elbow or chest? Maybe I'm just being too nosy about the whole thing.
