Have you ever had the awkward feeling when people look at you but you don’t know why?
Is it toothpaste on your cheek? Maybe a bit of spinach between your teeth?
A new nose on your forehead?
Well in China it’s the latter.
A man who was involved in a car accident and left without a proper hooter is currently growing one on his noggin.
He’s not done it off his own bat you understand.
“Here Doris, I’m sick of growing tomatoes and spuds. This year I’m aiming for something to host my olfactory senses.”
“Ooh Mao, that’ll be lovely.”
The doctors are growing the new beak by placing a skin tissue expander on his forehead, which they then cut into the shape of a nose and implanted cartilage.
The surgeons say the new nose is in good shape after nine months of growth and the transplant surgery should be carried out very soon.
I bet that’s a relief for the poor chap.
But whatever you do don’t stare – he’s also got toothpaste on his cheek!
