An Overview Of Skin Grafts

Skin grafting is surgery to cover and repair wounds with a skin graft. A skin graft is a healthy skin taken from an area of your body called the donor site. The skin may be taken from an area near the injury to match the area where the graft will be placed. Grafts that are artificial or come from another person or animal may be used temporarily. These are used as covers when large areas of the skin are damaged. They are replaced with your own skin over time. This article shall look at an overview of skin grafts.

Skin graft surgery is used to heal persons whose skin has been damaged by burns, traumas, wounds, sickness, or infection. If you’ve had surgery to remove skin cancer, your doctor may propose a skin graft to replace the missing skin.

The recovery period for this operation varies based on your overall health, the amount of the graft, and the procedure employed by your provider. Most skin graft surgeries are effective the first time. Sometimes the transplanted skin does not mend effectively or “take” to the surrounding skin. If this happens, you may require another skin graft.
