Abstract

The techniques of partial-thickness and full-thickness skin grafting are reviewed, including choice of donor site, preparation of recipient site, graft harvesting, and postoperative dressings and care. A review of the basic principles of skin graft healing is included to increase understanding of the reasons these techniques are used and to show how to avoid complications associated with skin grafting. The areas of usefulness of skin grafts are discussed in relation to the face, head, and neck.
