Doctors Grow New Nose on Man's Forehead to Replace Damaged Nose

Is it just me or does that nose growing on his forehead look too big for his face?  Also, has he been walking around with that thing?

A man identified only as "Xiaolian" suffered an injured nose in a car accident in August 2012 and an infection afterwards.

Apparently, his nose was irreparably damaged, so surgeons at a hospital in Fuzhou, Fujian, China decided to grow a new nose for Xiaolian on his forehead.

Small tissue expanding devices were placed under the skin and then cut to resemble a nose.

When Xiaolian's nose is transplanted to his face, cartilage will be surgically removed from his ribs for use as added structure.
