Holy S&@#$@: Growing a New Nose

This is yet another example of the incredible medical technology being worked on. This video tells the story of a poor woman whose nose was shot off during a drive-by in her native Ghana. Thanks to a program called Face to Face that gives free reconstructive plastic surgery to disadvantaged people, this poor young woman was given a new nose. The interesting part is that the nose was grown on her arm. The video is a bit graphic, showing many images of her new nose growing on her arm. Creepy, but that is some seriously awesome meatpunk work. I guess free healthcare can have good outcomes after all.
