Skin grafting is when healthy skin from one part of your body, mostly thighs or abdomen is removed (think like a potato peel) and then surgically attached to another part of your skin, which is damaged. The new skin heals and the wound heals faster.

Skin grafting is a process in which a small to large portion of skin is removed to replace damaged skin on the same body. The skin that replaces the damaged skin is usually from areas that are less noticable.

Skin grafts are often the only way to promote healing of wounds. First, an area to remove the skin from is injected with numbing medicine, often Lidocaine. Then, small, circular pieces of skin are taken and placed on the area that needs repair. Both areas are bandaged and you will be asked to keep both areas clean while they heal.
