Chinese surgeons at a hospital in Fuzhou, Fujian grew a new nose on a 22-year-old man’s forehead after an accident left his original one unusable, Reuters reports.

Xiaolian had sustained injuries to his original nose after a traffic accident, which led to a severe infection and deformity.

To craft the new appendage, doctors took cartilage from Xiaolian’s ribs and implanted it under skin tissue on his forehead. When finished growing later this month, the nose will be transplanted to its proper place.

In January, British doctors grew a nose on a man’s arm after he lost his original to cancer.
