Man Growing Nose On Forehead For Replacement

September 26, 2013


RETROACTIVE WARNING: Picture of guy growing a nose on his forehead and he's not even pretending to pick it.

Meet 22-year old Xiaolian. Meet 22-year old Xiaolian, but don't stare, because he's growing a new nose on his forehead after his original was damaged in a car crash and, because he refused medical treatment, an infection made it unrepairable. Honestly, I probably would have done the same thing. "But GW, you lost an arm!" Just throw it in my bookbag, I'll deal with it when I get home.

After several months, the infection had corroded the cartilage of the nose, 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

Hey, if I had a busted nose I'd grow one on my forehead too. Actually, I'd ask if they could grow it in an armpit or something first, but if my head was the only option, I'd do it. I'd even grow a friend's nose if they asked me to because I'm so caring. I'm not growing any penises on my head though, I don't care how bros we are. Alright I'll do it!

Thanks to Lisa and Thomas S, who don't want to grow anything on their foreheads except crisp $10,000 bills.
