Burns or other injuries resulting in the loss of a large area of skin may form a scar that pulls the edges of the skin together through a process called “contraction”. The resulting contracture may affect the adjacent muscles and tendons, restricting normal movement. Some scars can be softened by dermabrasion, a controlled scraping of the top layers of the skin, leaving a smoother surface.
Grafting involves the transfer of skin from a healthy part of the body (the donor site) to cover the injured area. The graft is said to take when new blood vessels form and allow the graft to survive. A procedure utilizing flaps is a complex technique in which skin, along with the underlying fat, blood vessels, and sometimes the muscle, is moved from a healthy part of the body to the injured site. Skin grafting and flap procedures can greatly improve the function of a scarred area.
