Elsewhere In The World: British Man, Has Dented Head Rebuilt With Medical Miracle Using His Own Fat

- By Bossip Staff

You have to see this to believe it!

Meet Tim Barter, a 32-year-old British “visual effects director” who sustained a 25-foot fall in 2009 and had the resulting dent in his head fixed with a titanium plate and stomach fat by doctors at Kings College Hospital in London. Via HuffingtonPost:

In June 2009, neighbors found Barter unconscious outside his home after he tried to climb a drainpipe, the BBC reports. The visual effects director had locked himself out of his house and was trying to climb in when he lost his grip and plummeted to the ground.

Barter suffered a shattered eye socket, a broken leg, brain hemorrhaging and went into a 10-day coma.

After the incident, Barter experienced a bit of double vision, which temporarily impaired him from usual activities.

“Life stopped for a couple of months,” the Telegraph quotes Barter as saying. “I was frightened that my eyesight would never go back to normal…”

But now, life is returning to normal after physicians at King’s College Hospital were able to reshape Barter’s skull with a titanium plate and stomach fat, the British newspaper Metro reports.

The breakthroughs of science are amazing! We wonder how fast men will be trying to get these doctors to turn their stomach fat into muscle.
