Welcome to our vitiligo surgery page. Vitiligo is a skin condition that causes depigmentation or loss of color in patches on the skin. While there is no cure for vitiligo, there are several surgical treatment options available to help improve the appearance of the affected skin. At our clinic, we offer a range of vitiligo surgery options that are safe, effective, and customized to meet the specific needs and goals of our patients.
Types of Vitiligo Surgery
There are several surgical procedures available to treat vitiligo, including:
Punch Grafting: This technique involves removing small round pieces of healthy skin from an unaffected area of the body and grafting them onto the depigmented areas of skin. The grafted skin contains healthy melanocytes, which can help restore pigment to the affected area.
Suction Blister Grafting: This technique involves creating blisters on the healthy skin using suction, then transplanting the roof of the blister onto the depigmented area. This roof contains healthy melanocytes that can restore pigment to the affected area.
Melanocyte Keratinocyte Transplant: This technique involves taking a small sample of healthy skin from an unaffected area of the body, isolating the melanocytes and keratinocytes, and then transplanting them onto the depigmented area.
Split Thickness Graft: This technique involves taking a thin layer of skin from an unaffected area of the body and transplanting it onto the depigmented area. The transplanted skin contains healthy melanocytes that can help restore pigment to the affected area.
