(London Mirror) A teenage girl who was left horrifically disfigured in a fire has had a new face grown on her BREAST by doctors.

The move follows a similar operation in which another group of Chinese doctors managed to give a car accident victim a new nose by growing it first on his forehead.

In the latest operation 17-year-old Xu Jianmei woke up after the operation this week to find that she once again had a chin, eyelids and an ear.

But she said best of all she could smile properly for the first time in 12 years since the fire that left her horrifically disfigured when she was just five.
