A Chinese man has undergone an operation after 40 years of heavy drinking left him with an elephant-trunk nose.


The 56-year-old drinker, identified as Li from the city of Tieling in the north-eastern Chinese province of Liaoning, developed the condition due to his love for alcohol.


The dimensions of Lis nose were 8.5 centimetres by 7 centimetres by 4.5 centimetres and it covered his top lip, according to the news site Baidu.


He said: When I eat, my nose always goes first. When I eat soup, it gets hot. When I drink water, I have to lift it up.


Li said that he drank eight large glasses of liquor every day for almost 40 years before cutting down to a smaller glass.


Lis doctor said that his excessive drinking accelerated the expansion of the capillaries and increased the swelling, adding that he has encountered dozens of cases of rosacea, a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels.


The doctor admitted that most of the patients were long-term drinkers with a particular taste for strong spirits.


Some patients develop hyperplasia, an increase in the amount of organic tissue caused by cell proliferation often leading to gross enlargement.


Lis condition affected his everyday life, even down to breathing and sleeping, potentially causing further problems such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.


On the morning of 24 March, doctors successfully operated on Li and removed his elephant nose, before warning him that the condition could return unless he cuts down on alcohol.
