Efforts to repigment affected areas and preserve normal skin.
Vitiligo is an autoimmune skin condition with significant psychological and cosmetic effects on patients. Depending on its severity, it is usually managed successfully with medical and light-based treatments. When vitiligo becomes rapidly progressive or remains resistant to basic treatments, surgery can help complement and stabilize the condition.
The aim of surgical treatment in vitiligo is to help repigment areas to improve the cosmetic appearance of the condition. It is best indicated for stable and localized aras of vitiligo. Although surgery alone cannot stop the progression of vitiligo, it provides pigmentation and can improve social stigmas and quality of life.
