The skin graft has completely healed as have the underlying bones and the patien is walking again. Notice how smooth the graft is- even though it was initially meshed, the small cuts in the graft have nicely filled in. Gentle moisturizing lotion and massage should be done to the area at a minimum of once each day for the next 6 months. In addition, some type of compression stocking or an ace wrap should be worn regularly to decrease/prevent swelling in the area.
