A 22-year-old man in China who suffered a bad accident that resulted in a disfigured nose.
The patient lost part of his nose in an accident in 2012 and did not immediately have any reconstruction surgery because he couldn�t afford it. An infection later ate away much of his nose cartilage, he said.
Surgeon Guo Zhihui at a hospital in Fujian Province spent nine months cultivating the graft for a 22-year-old man, surnamed Lian, whose nose was damaged. Cartilage taken from his ribs, skin from his forehead and a tissue expander were used to develop the nose.
Guo plans to cut the nose from the forehead while leaving a section of skin still connected, and then rotate and graft it into position in a later operation.
Xiaolian will start a normal life once a successful surgery is done. God bless !!!
