What is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a pigmentation disorder caused due to destruction of the melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin. As a result, white patches develop on the skin of various body parts. Sometimes the hair that grows on areas affected by vitiligo turns white.

What would be the Vitiligo surgery cost?

The Vitiligo surgery cost depends upon the type of surgical method followed. As it may need many sessions, it can turn out to be a little expensive as compared to other forms of treatment.

Vitiligo Treatment and Procedure:

Vitiligo Treatment and Procedure

Vitiligo treatment takes a long time to show effects. It usually must be continued for 6 to 18 months. The choice of treatment depends on the abundance of white patches; their location, and type of treatment you prefer.

Every patient responds differently to the treatment. A particular treatment may not work similarly to everyone. Modern treatment options for vitiligo include medical, surgical, and adjunctive therapies.

Medical treatments:

Medicines are available to restore skin colour or even out complexion, though results differ and are unpredictable. 

Surgical treatments:

They are suitable only for selective patients who have vitiligo for at least three years:

1. Autologous skin grafts

It includes removal of skin from one area of your body and transplanting it to another body region.

2. Skin grafts using blisters

The doctor produces blisters on your pigmented skin by applying heat, suction, or cold. The top layers of the blisters are then removed out and transplanted to a depigmented skin area.

3. Micro-pigmentation (tattooing)

This method includes implanting pigment into the skin with a particular surgical tool. It works best for the lip area, especially in people with dark skin. But it is difficult for the doctor to perfectly match the colour of the skin of the surrounding area.

4. Autologous melanocyte transplant

In this procedure, the doctor uses a sample of your normal skin and places it in a laboratory dish comprising a particular cell-culture solution to develop melanocytes. When the melanocytes in the culture media multiply, the doctor transplants them to your depigmented skin patches.

What are the causes of Vitiligo?

The exact cause of Vitiligo is unknown.

  • There is strong evidence that vitiligo patients inherit a group of three genes that make them susceptible to depigmentation.
  • The most widely accepted opinion is that the depigmentation occurs as vitiligo is an autoimmune disease, a disease in which a person’s immune system reacts against the body’s organs or tissues.
  • Another assumption is that melanocytes destroy themselves.
  • Eventually, some people have reported that a single event such as sunburn or emotional distress triggered vitiligo.
