Soft tissue grafts
how painful is it
It is difficult to estimate the level of pain since it is subjective. Most of our patients have complaints for 2 days or so after surgery, and the site that we take the tissue from is more painful. They basically compare and find similarity to a pain experienced after one burns his mouth with hot pizza.
