Success of skin grafts depends on sufficient immobilization and early intervention for hematoma, seroma, or infection. To stabilize and cover skin grafts with a tie-over technique was used with translucent silicone gel sheet on flat surface. Skin defect was resurfaced with skin grafts. A sterile silicone gel sheet was placed over the skin graft. Gel was fixed to the wound edges with skin sutures. Skin graft healed without any complications. Using silicone gel sheet in skin graft on flat surface is an effective method for stabilization, which also allows direct visualization of the graft designed to inspect hematoma-like complications.
