Figure 2: Bilateral groin contractures managed with skin grafts. (a) A 15-year-old female child with extensive bilateral groin contracture and postburn scarring of the lower abdomen and both thighs. (b) The bilateral release of the groin contracture resulted in large raw areas. (c) The groin and upper thigh raw areas were resurfaced with sheets of SSG placed parallel to the natural crease lines. Long silk threads are in place to apply a “bolster dressing” for adequate pressure. (d) Postoperative result at 4 weeks showing a well-settled graft. Further management requires wearing tight customized undergarments with sponge sheets. Silicone gel/sheets may be used as appropriate, under the garment
