A man from China's Fujian province has had a new nose grown on his forehead following a traffic accident last year.

The 22-year-old man badly injured his nose and the treatment he received caused the cartilage in his nose to corrode.

So surgeons came up with the idea of growing a nose on his forehead.

After nine months of growth, surgeons say that the the nose is in good shape and the transplant will be performed soon.
