BEIJING--A surgeon in China says he has constructed an extra nose out of a
man's rib cartilage and implanted it under the skin of his forehead to
prepare for a transplant in probably the first operation of its kind.
Surgeon Guo Zhihui at Fujian Medical University Union Hospital in China's
southeastern province of Fujian spent nine months cultivating the graft for
a 22-year-old man whose nose was damaged.
