Girl With Nose Bitten off by Rat Gifted With New Nose

Kunsang Lhamo, a 10-year-old girl with her nose bitten off by rat from northwest China's Qinghai Province, underwent a successful plastic surgery on the afternoon of October 26 in Nanjing, east China's Jiangsu Province.

The girl's nose was bitten off by a rat when she was two-year-old. A photographer from Nanjing found her when he was taking photos for the students in Yushu, Qinghai Province. He contacted Maternity and Child Care Hospital in Nanjing which promised to give her free treatment.

Kunsang Lhamo went to the hospital at about 10:00 accompanied by local residents.

Fortunately, she recovered very well after the surgery, said her teacher Jin Tso.

"I was very nervous when she entered the operation room. The doctor came out one hour later. I felt relieved when I saw her fell asleep quietly," said Jin Tso, the teacher of the girl.

The doctor said that he was surprised by her braveness during and after the surgery.

"I used to worry that the ten-year-old girl could not cooperate during the operation. But she was very brave without crying. I was touched when I saw the smile on her face after the surgery," said Li Jun, the doctor of medical cosmetology department of Maternity and Child Care Hospital in Nanjing.

Total three operations need to be done to make a nose for the girl, including the skin-grafting, the nose-forming surgery and contouring operation, according to Li.

"We will come back for the second surgery during the summer vacation next year and for the third one during the winter holidays," said Li.
