Skin Grafting

Skin Grafting Photo Skin grafting is one of the surgical procedures that involves removing the skin from one part of the body (Donor site) and moving/ transplant into the another part of the same body or different body (recipient site). This grafting may be done if any part of the body has lost its protective layer (Skin) due to burns, injury or surgery. It is also known as Dermatoplasty / Dermoplasty. Split-thickness graft and Full-thickness grafts are the two main classifications. A Split-thickness graft involves removing the thin layer of Epidermis (top layer of the skin) from the donor site, which is the area where the healthy skin is located. A full thickness graft involves removing the pinching or cutting away the small part of the skin from the donor site. That is a more risky method, it leaves scars from the donor site and also we cannot get better cosmetic outcomes.
