Photos: Man with severe facial deformities which give him 'alien-like' features

The family of a man with severe deformities is hoping he can undergo life-changing facial surgery.

This is a very rarw deformity and it normally takes much courage and psychological support to live with it.

 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.

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. His brother is now attempting to raise enough funds to get the ground-breaking operation.
