  1. skin graft

    A skin graft is a surgical procedure in which a piece of skin is removed from one area of the body (donor site) and transplanted or attached to another area of the body (recipient site). This procedure is often used to treat serious skin conditions such as severe burns, extensive wounds, areas of skin loss due to infection, or skin cancer surgery. There are different types of skin grafts, including autografts (from the patient's own body), allografts (from another person) and synthetic grafts. The goal of skin grafting is to enhance healing, reduce the course of treatment needed, and improve the function and appearance of the area of the body where the skin was lost.
