A successful skin graft take requires the adherence of skin graft to its recipient area for 5-7 days. This is achieved by fixing the skin graft to its defect. Routinely it is done by using sutures and staplers. We describe a method of fixing skin grafts using the dressing material without the need for sutures. A non-randomized, non-controlled trial was conducted at a tertiary care burns referral center at Mumbai, India, attached to Dept. of plastic surgery of a tertiary care teaching hospital, from August 2020 to July 2021. Twenty patients who underwent split skin grafting were included during the study period. All the patients had more than 90 percent skin graft take. This method of skin graft fixation is a safe, viable, cheaper, fast alternate option to the traditional methods of skin graft fixation, viz. sutures, staples or fibrin glue.

Key words: skin graft, burns, skin graft dressing
