Experimental: Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) Group
Patients randomized to this group will receive treatment with a PRF graft in clinic at the time any pertinent post-operative complication is identified.
Procedure: Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) Application
Platelet Rich Fibrin application to flap defect.
No Intervention: No Platelet Rich Fibrin Group
Participants in the observational control group will be managed at the time of the complication by standard of care methods.
- Change in healing time at 3 months post-operative [ Time Frame: Up to 3 months ]Improved healing of PRF patients compared to control group.
