Vitiligo Surgery-Ultra Thin Grafting

Vitiligo Surgery-Ultra Thin Grafting

Vitiligo is a skin disorder that causes the loss of skin pigmentation in patches, resulting in white patches or spots on the skin. It is a chronic condition that affects approximately 1% of the world’s population, and can occur at any age, gender, or ethnicity. Vitiligo is not contagious and does not pose any serious health risks, but it can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem and quality of life.


Surgical methods of treatment:

  1. Skin grafting: This involves taking healthy skin from another part of the body and transplanting it onto the affected areas. This method is usually reserved for cases of stable, non-spreading vitiligo.
  2. Blister grafting: This involves creating blisters on the healthy skin and transplanting them onto the affected areas. The melanocytes from the blisters can then repigment the affected areas.
  3. Micropigmentation: This involves tattooing the affected areas with skin-colored pigments to blend in with the surrounding skin.
  4. Transplantation of Cultured and non –cultured melanocyte suspension.
