Vitiligo is a skin disease of uncertain nature and common disorder of depigmentation or white patches on skin which might be focal at one place or even generalised throughout the body. It affects 1-2/100 people and both sexes equally. The melanocyte in the affected area loose their melanin pigment and become perfectly white.
The choice of therapy depends upon number of white patches, how widespread they are, stability and responsiveness to previous medical treatment like UV-A or UV-B therapy.
Vitiligo surgeries like PUNCH GRAFTING, SUCTION BLISTER GRAFTING, NON CULTURED MELANOCYTE TRANSFER OR MELANOCYTE TRANSPLANT is performed at DERMASOLUTIONS clinic by Dr Sandeep and his team. The latest technique of Non cultured Melanocyte Suspension is done by taking very ultra thin skin graft from normaly pigmented areas like thighs or buttocks and then melanocyte suspension is prepared by a specialised lab technique of centrifugation and incubation etc. .
The area where the graft needs to be implanted is superficially dermabraded and prepared for the transfer of the melanocyte suspension. Small portion of pigmented skin can cover big vitiliginous or white patches and cosmetically looks very natural once the pigment uptake happens. Dressing is usually removed after 7 days and best results are seen after 3-6 months of surgery. .
MELANOCYTE TRANSPLANT is the latest and most sophisticated VITILIGO SURGERY and is carried under aegis of Dr Sandeep Mahaptara at DERMASOLUTIONS CLINIC for giving hope to thousands of patients suffering from Vitiligo.
Vitiligo is a common skin condition in all Indians, including those in Bangalore, where patches of the skin turn white. It occurs due to the damage of melanocytes, the cells responsible for the melanin content in our skin. The melanin gives our skin the tone we should have; in its absence, the skin becomes white in patches.
At Derma Solutions in Bangalore, our expert team of dermatologists led by Dr. Sandeep Mahapatra conduct effective techniques for treating this condition. One of our most advanced methods for vitiligo treatment is the melanocyte transplant.
Our adept and knowledgeable specialists conduct this surgery with utmost accuracy and precision. A small grafting can cover larger patches using this method. The results of this vitiligo treatment are much more effective due to the transplant of cells, not skin.
Apart from the transplant, other surgical methods include punch grafting, melanocyte transfer, suction blister grafting, etc. Another effective technique our dermatologists offer for vitiligo treatment is melanocyte suspension. In this method, the grafting is done from a normally-toned area such as the thighs. Thus, this has an excellent cosmetic appearance.
