Skin grafts and flaps are specialized surgical procedures offered at Local Wound Care of Glendale, providing effective solutions for healing complex wounds. These advanced techniques are essential in treating wounds that are not amenable to simpler closure methods, particularly in the Los Angeles area where diverse cases are encountered.

Understanding Skin Grafts and Flaps

Skin grafts involve transplanting skin from one area of the body to the wound site, while flaps are more complex and involve transferring tissue, along with its blood supply, to cover a wound. These techniques are pivotal in managing large, deep, or non-healing wounds.

When Are Skin Grafts and Flaps Needed?

These procedures are typically employed for:

  • Burns
  • Large traumatic wounds
  • Surgical wounds with significant tissue loss
  • Chronic ulcers not responding to other treatments

The Process of Skin Grafts and Flaps

Our approach to these procedures is comprehensive and patient-centered:

  • Assessment and Planning: We thoroughly evaluate the wound and discuss the best surgical options with the patient.
  • Surgical Procedure: The surgery is performed in a sterile environment, using either skin grafts or flaps, depending on the wound’s requirements.
  • Postoperative Care: We provide detailed care instructions and close follow-up to ensure optimal healing and graft or flap viability.

The Role of Skin Grafts and Flaps in Wound Care Management
