Surgeons have been sucessful in growing a nose to substitute "Xiaolin's" makeshift one that he lost in a sever nasal trauma in a serious car accident in August 2012. Following financial concerns, the patient was just given basic medical remedy instead of a plastic surgery to reconstruct the battered nasal cartilage. A few months later, due to the lack of surgery the nasal injury was infected and the nasal cartilage began to corrode making it impossible for surgeons to perform nasal reconstruction.
However, the surgeons came up with the idea of growing a nose on the patient's forhead, something that has never been tried in medical history. How? First the placed a skin tissue expander onto Xiaolin's forehead, cutting it into shape of a nose and planting a cartilage taken from his ribs, after 9 months, the surgeons feel confident that the nose is ready to be implanted and the patient will be able to lead a normal life after successful surgery.
