    Do childhood skin grafts from burns grow?

    Hello, I was hoping I would get some replies on this. My child has a skin graft from a scald on her leg and I've been told mixed things from the professionals, some say it wont grow and therefore will be proportionately smaller as the non-burnt skin will do all the growing, and others say it will grow.

    Has anyone had a skin graft following a burn as a baby/child, and has it grown as you've got older or remained the same size?

    Please reply if you do know, thank you

    Hello, I was burned as a 1year of age and I have several skin grafts.. I'm 43 now and my places where my skin grafts are have grown a little but they are pretty tight in some places... Feel free to ask me any questions you may have
