Vitiligo Surgery


Vitiligo is a long-term skin condition in which the skin’s color turns to white and white patches appear all over the body. This skin disorder causes skin depigmentation, which can be treated with “VITILIGO SURGERY”.

Vitiligo surgery is a tried-and-true treatment for completely repigmenting skin that has lost its colour due to a problem in the pigment “Melanin.” The condition occurs when melanocytes (the skin cells that produce melanin, the chemical that gives skin its colour or pigmentation) are destroyed by the body’s immune system.

What are the Signs/Symptoms of Vitiligo?

Vitiligo Surgery causes the following signs and symptoms:

  • White patches
  • Discoloration of the skin
  • Loss of colour in the inner skin’s tissues
  • Many parts of the body, such as the elbows, knees, and cheeks, have depigmentation.
What Causes Vitiligo?
  • Melanocyte cells that aren’t working properly
  • A genetic occurrence
  • Immune dysfunction caused by stress
  • Virus or a long-term condition
  • It can also happen as a result of sunburn or a cut.
  • Chemicals that are harmful to the skin are exposed to a small number of people.
Treatment Options for Vitiligo

Skin grafts taken from one portion of the patient and used to cover another part are known as autologous (from the patient) skin grafts. Scarring, infection, or a failure to repigment are all possible side effects. This is also known as micro grafting. This is a procedure which is performed in OPD on the same day, the patient is not required to stay in the hospital for longer or get admitted.

Micropigmentation is a type of tattooing that is commonly used on the lips of vitiligo patients.

Is vitiligo a painful condition?

Vitiligo is not a painful condition. On the other hand, sunburns on lighter skin can be severe. It is critical to protect yourself from the sun by using sunscreen, avoiding the sun during peak hours, and wearing protective clothing. Itchy skin has been described in some patients with vitiligo, even before the depigmentation begins.

How long does it take to recover after vitiligo treatment?

Treatments for vitiligo can only help to reduce the appearance of visible white patches and improve skin conditions. As a result, constant monitoring is essential, and treatments must be repeated as directed by a dermatologist.

Are any dietary restrictions required in Vitiligo Surgery?
