In brief: I don't understand..

...The question. If you mean harvesting donor skin for a skin graft, it is cut out from an anesthetized, inconspicuous area, such as behind the ear.
If you mean replacement skin for grafting a burn patient, it is harvested from whatever healthy areas of skin are left.
