NewsRecsue- A Chinese man has had a new nose grown on his forehead following a road traffic accident last year after which his nasal cartilage corroded. The astonishing pictures show Xiaolian, 22, at a hospital in Fuzhou, Fujian province, as doctors check on his progress ahead of transplant surgery.

Potentially all replacement body parts will be grown invivo to prevent transplant reactions. Hearts, kidneys, etc.

The nose is now ready to transplant, 9 months, yup, 9 months after its conception.

But why forehead? That would have just made him two nosy won’t it?
