What is Skin Grafting?
Facial skin grafting is a type of surgery that is performed to replace facial skin that has been lost due to injury, illness, or burns. During the surgery, healthy skin is removed from a different part of the body and then transplanted to replace the missing or damaged skin. Facial skin grafts may be required after a number of events. The most common reasons why someone may need a facial skin graft include:
- Removal of a cancerous tumor and the healthy skin around it
- Severe burns or burns covered a large portion of the face
- Skin infections that have resulted in open wounds
- Trauma or accident that has caused an open wound to persist
