Skin grafting refers to skin transplantation. This is a surgical procedure that involves removing skin from one part of the body to replace another damaged skin area. This procedure can be done in any part of the body which has lost its protective skin surface that occurred due to skin burns, injury or illness.

Split thickness grafting and full thickness grafting are its two kinds. Depending on the severity of the damaged skin, the dermatologist decides which one to perform.
