Vitiligo Surgery in Lucknow: Vitiligo is a skin condition in which patches of skin lose their color.
The total area of skin that can be affected by vitiligo varies between individuals. It can also affect the eyes, the inside of the mouth, and the hair. In most cases, the affected areas remain discolored for the rest of the person’s life.
When the skin is in the process of recovering from any injury (accident, surgery, burns, or acne), it naturally occurs scar. Once a scar forms, it’s somewhat permanent, and if you notice around
The condition is photosensitive. This means that the areas that are affected will be more sensitive to sunlight than those that are not.
It is hard to predict whether the patches will spread, and by how much. The spread might take weeks, or the patches might remain stable for months or years.
The lighter patches tend to be more visible in people with dark or tanned skin.
If light therapy and medications haven’t worked, some people with stable diseases may be candidates for surgery. We at LPS Clinic follow these techniques to even out skin tone by restoring color:
Skin grafting: In this procedure, your doctor transfers very small sections of your healthy, pigmented skin to areas that have lost pigment. This procedure is sometimes used if you have small patches of vitiligo.
Possible risks include infection, scarring, a cobblestone appearance, spotty color, and failure of the area to recolor.
Blister grafting: In this procedure, your doctor creates blisters on your pigmented skin, usually with suction, and then transplants the tops of the blisters to discolored skin.
Possible risks include scarring, a cobblestone appearance, and failure of the area to recolor. And the skin damage caused by suctioning may trigger another patch of vitiligo.
Cellular suspension transplant: In this procedure, your doctor takes some tissue on your pigmented skin, puts the cells into a solution, and then transplants them onto the prepared affected area. The results of this repigmentation procedure start showing up within four weeks.
Possible risks include scarring, infection, and uneven skin tone.
