POST OPERATIVE CARE FOR DONOR AREA

Using a Bio oil or any moisturizing oil, begin light massage through the donor area beginning one week after your sutures have been removed.

Applying a circular motion and gentle pressure, work through the entire length of the scar.

Massaging the donor area should be done 10 -20 minutes every day for 4-6 months.

There are four major benefits of Post Operative Massage to the donor area which include:

1. Enhances healing, producing a soft and faint scar.

2. Prevents formation of lumpy scar or hypertrophic keloid

3. Prevents adhesion to underlying  tissue thereby making future graft harvest easier

4. Reduces pain and numbness around the scar site.
