Plastic surgeons at Shenyang Army General Hospital in Liaoning Province are looking at the possibility of creating a new face for the former laboratory technician.

The procedure, which involves expanding the skin on the left side of chest, started six months ago. To stretch Jianbin’s skin, the doctors injected saline water into his chest.

According to Jianbin’s doctors, the procedure will take at least two years and will be broken into five complex stages.

Now that the “new face” has been created, the next two phases will be building a new nose using his newly created skin and rib cartilage.

Afterwards, new blood vessels and arteries will be created in the third phase.


Face transplantation will be carried out in the fourth phase, while carving and fine-tuning Jianbin’s new facial features will be done in the last phase.
