5000+ grafts will probably not all grow
This unfortunate man who went to Turkey, has well more than 5000 grafts. I am sure his donor supply was significantly depleted and the grafts, at least many of them, may not grow. The people who perform such surgeries are challenged to product a very high number of grafts thinking that this is good surgery, even better surgery. In fact, this is POOR surgery because the grafts will not get enough blood supply to thrive and grow. There is also a good possibility that they patient may develop necrosis because the blood supply to the recipient area was cut off from the many wounds created for the recipient sites. As long as there are believers that this is a bargain that they can’t turn down, then these terrible surgeries will continue leaving victims flying home from Turkey now knowing what will happen to them and many with problems like necrosis which will require more expensive medical care.
