Skin grafts can heal with a bulky appearance or uneven edges. The outcome can be significantly improved with a procedure to smooth out the graft. In this instance, Dr. Selkin recommends the dermabrasion procedure. This procedure is meant to improve the look of a scar by softening sharp edges and contouring the area to give a smoother, refreshed appearance. The procedure is done under local anesthetic and completed utilizing a high-speed rotary instrument in combination with an electric cautery unit.
