  1. Skin grafts are divided into 2 major categories: full-thickness skin grafts (FTSGs) and split-thickness skin grafts (STSGs). STSGs may be subdivided into thin ( to mm), medium ( to mm), and thick ( to mm) grafts. Although the use of skin grafts is indicated primarily in reconstruction after surgical excision.
  2. Apr 15,  · Skin grafting not only improves the physical appearance after the surgery is done but also has the ability to improve the health-related outcomes [12]. Skin grafting is recommended when there is a large amount of skin loss due to various reasons, as aforementioned. One of the most common uses of skin grafting is associated with burn wildepofunlauporterpterthehydmendtof.coinfo: Amritha K.
  3. I've had a skin graft on the front side of my neck below the chin about fourty five years ago following a burn accident. Now at the age of 60, it seems that the skin graft starting to contract and shrink even though I've always used and still use nivea cream daily. I don't know why this is happening after so many years.
  4. Autologous skin grafts are broadly categorized based on their thickness as full or partial-thickness. Regardless of graft type, all require a vascularized wound bed. Full thickness skin grafts have severai advantages, including a better cosmetic result, with less associated contraction, in comparison to thinner grafts, but require a healthier, more vascularized bed.
  5. Skin grafting results in two wounds rather than one, with both having the potential to become infected. Autografts are the most common grafts used, where the donor and recipient is the same patient. Much like burns, autografts may be full-thickness or partial-thickness (split-skin), depending on how much of the dermis the surgeon chooses to use.
  6. Aug 03,  · I have a large melanoma on my right calf about 2 inches above my ankle and the excision will need to be about 3x3 inches with margins. My surgical oncologist anticipates a skin graft and I really nervous about the healing process. I believe it will be a split level graft because the graft will come from my thigh. While I don't want anyone to sugar coat anything, if you just.
  7. I had surgery 10 days ago to remove a BCC from my nose and had a skin graft from skin taken from my neck. I went to have the stitches taken out today and the skin graft hasn't taken. The wound on my nose has been treated today with a medicinal grade honey and I'll have to have the dressing changed twice weekly for several weeks/months to come.
