If your skin has been unpleasantly altered from a wound, illness, or burn, you may want to consider skin grafting in order to restore the appearance of your skin.
Why Should I Consider Skin Grafting?
With this procedure, you can reduce the appearance of wounds, burns, or other signs of illness with a relatively mild procedure with recovery time under a week.
Benefits of Skin Grafting
- Treats some types of open wounds
- Repairs skin defects
- Releases scars
- Assists in burn healing
In the Procedure
In this technique, small portions of skin are shaved from an uninjured body part and are applied to the injured area. Depending on the amount of skin taken, the skin donor area will heal on its own or it may be closed with stitches.
