Doctors regrow man's ear in China

- Chinese doctors have grown an ear on a man's arm - just so they can reattach it to his head.

Yes, you read that correctly.

 Plastic surgeons at a hospital in China's Shaanxi province say they've successfully regenerated an ear for a patient on his arm Wednesday.

The man lost his ear in a 2015 car accident and began the procedure around three months ago.

The doctors buried a dilator inside the man’s arm and injected a small amount of water inside each day. They then carved the lump into the shape of an ear by using three pieces of cartilage taken from the side of the patient's chest.

 Doctors are waiting for the ear to grow even more before they cut it off and attach it to his head.
