It's amazing what science can do these days. For one man, it just about changed his life.

John Haley lost his nose ten years ago to an accident, but couldn't afford a new one until recently. So, anaplastologist Maddie Singer at the University of Tennessee built one for him.

Singer combines both science and her background in Hollywood's special effects to help change the lives of her patients.

Hayley's nose is held in place with not only glue, but magnets as well. With some final touches of color stains and atomized sugar, you can't even tell it's not real.
