What is Vitiligo Surgery ?

Vitiligo or Leucoderma or White Patches is a common condition where white patches develop on the skin due to loss of pigment from affected areas of the skin. There are usually no other symptoms. In some cases the pigment can be restored with medical treatment & phototherapy without surgery. Also the affected area can be covered by skin camouflage creams& colors.

If the vitiligo is noticeable by other people, embarrassment can lead to self-esteem problems and in some cases depression. Thus it is considered as a social stigma. These girls & boys with white skin patches, especially demand correction if they are in marriage age group. Some elderly parents also wants vitiligo correction to avoid rejection of their son or daughter for marriage, as vitiligo is known to run in some families.

Vitiligo is a condition in which you lose the pigment of your skin. Pigment, or melanin, causes skin color and is produced by cells called “melanocytes.” Most people with vitiligo lose pigment in patches of normally pigmented skin, which is replaced by flat, white patches with irregular borders. This loss of pigmentation can occur in small patches on one side of the body or in large areas covering over 50 percent of the body.

These patches are usually areas of your body that are exposed to the sun, such as your:

  • Hands
  • Face
  • Arms
  • Feet

However, your genitalia can also be affected. Vitiligo can be treated but not cured.
