MELANOCYTE TRANSPLANTATION SURGERY
Melanocyte transplantation procedure also known as Non-cultured Melanocyte-Keratinocyte Transplantation Procedure (MKTP) is the latest technique in the surgical management of Vitiligo/Leukoderma. It involves separating skin cells from normal skin and transplanting on white spots. It is a highly skilled procedure and can be performed in 1 to 3 hours as a day care procedure.
In this treatment large affected lesions can be treated effectively. The cosmetic results achieved are superior to other surgical methods such as skin grafting and punch grafting. Moreover, the difficult to treat areas like bony surface, areola, genitals and knuckles can also be treated with excellent results.
Our doctors at Skin Saga are amongst the few doctors all over the world who have been trained in this particular procedure that requires good skill.
For a detailed consultation with regards to any surgery for Vitiligo, we would recommend that you come in for a proper evaluation and assessment before deciding to go for any treatment.
