Man’s dented head reshaped using his own body fat.

In the first procedure of its kind in Britain, Tim Barter, 32, had his   forehead reshaped using fat from his stomach and titanium plates.

The visual effects supervisor, who worked on the BBC’s Dr Who television   series, shattered his skull, cheekbone and eye socket after he fell 25ft   from a drainpipe and hit his head on a brick wall.

The accident, which happened as he tried climb into his house after locking   himself out, left him in a coma for 10 days.

Doctors had to remove part of his skull on the right side of his head to   relieve swelling and bleeding on his brain.

However, he has now made a full recovery after pioneering treatment by Robert   Bentley, a cranio-oral and maxillofacial surgeon from London’s King’s   College Hospital.
