Vitiligo Surgery | Overview
Vitiligo surgery is an effective method for treatment of white patches typical in this case. This surgery is highly advanced as grafts are taken from normal donor skin tissue and surgically transplanted onto the vitiligo patches. These skin grafts then produce the melanin pigment otherwise lost in the vitiligo patch. Melanocyte transplants are another technique where in cells from the top layer of normal skin are surgically obtained, grown in lab and then applied to Vitiligo patches. The success rates of vitiligo surgeries are very high – 80-90%. Topical and light therapies too are popular for vitiligo treatment.
