Skin Donations for Burn Patients.
It seems that contrary to popular belief, folds of skin removed from former morbidly obese patients cannot be used for patients in burn units who are in need of replacement skin tissue. Unfortunately, the skin has lost all of it's elasticity, is too thin, has poor circulation and is overstretched.
Healthy skin tissue that can help burn patients is easily obtained from recently expired cadavers, and through modern science, skin can even be regenerated.
