Expansion meshed skin grafts in care of the donor site in skin grafting vestibuloplasty.

Abstract

A method of caring for split-thickness skin graft donor sites using a physiologic dressing of meshed donor material, taken at the same time and location as the split thickness skin graft harvested for maxillary or mandibular vestibuloplasty, has been presented. This procedure is simple to accomplish and provides rewarding postoperative results, with rapid re-epithelialization of the donor site, early ambulation, absence of pain, and an excellent final cosmetic result.
