Xia Yuanhai, 53, who lives in Laotu village in Chongqing, southwestern China, has facial hyperplasia, excessive tissue enlargement. It means his facial proportions have become grossly enlarged, crushing his teeth and making him deaf.
The family of a Xia Yuanhai is hoping he can undergo life-changing facial surgery.
His brother, Xia Yuanchang, 66, said the symptoms only developed in adulthood. He said it came on gradually, and treatment would have been extremely expensive. Because of this, his family did not seek medical help when he was younger.
Now, many years later, it has completely deformed Xia’s face. See more photo below;
