What is a skin graft?

A skin graft is a patch of skin that is surgically removed from one area of the body (=donor site) and transplanted to another area (=the recipient area). The characteristics of the skin graft depend on the area from which the graft has been removed and on its thickness. The choice of the donor area and of the thickness of grafts should be therefore tailored to the characteristics of the recipient area and to patient’s expectations.
