Dr. Leena Jain emphasizes, “Success in skin grafting largely depends on careful patient selection and the stability of vitiligo. For those who qualify, it can significantly restore pigment and improve life quality.”
Skin grafting can be particularly effective for stable areas of vitiligo, where small skin pieces from pigmented areas are transplanted to depigmented spots, aiming to restore color.

Types of Skin Grafting for Vitiligo

There are various skin grafting techniques, personalized to address the specific requirements of each vitiligo case:

  • Mini-punch Grafting: This is often used for small, stable areas of vitiligo. Tiny skin grafts are removed from pigmented areas and transferred to depigmented spots.
  • Blister Grafting: Less invasive than other methods, this involves creating blisters on pigmented skin using suction. These are then carefully transferred to vitiligo-affected areas.
  • Split-thickness Grafts: It is suitable for larger areas. This method involves removing a thinner layer of skin from a donor site and transplanting it to the depigmented area.

Each method has its advantages, chosen according to the size, area, and extent of the white spots on the skin affected by vitiligo. During consultations, patients can expect a detailed explanation of the available options and what to anticipate from each procedure.

Skin Grafting Procedure for Vitiligo


Initial Consultation and Assessment

A comprehensive medical evaluation is conducted to assess the stability of vitiligo. Different grafting techniques tailored to the patient’s needs are discussed.

Skin conditioning and general health optimization are undertaken to prepare both the donor and recipient sites, enhancing the success rate of the graft.

The Grafting Procedure

A suitable donor site is chosen, and skin is harvested using methods such as mini-punch, blister, or split-thickness. The skin is then carefully transplanted to the prepared area.

Immediate Postoperative Care

The graft and donor sites are dressed carefully to protect them and manage pain effectively, ensuring patient comfort.

Follow-Up Visits

Regular monitoring of the graft’s health and the healing process is conducted. Adjustments are made as needed to promote optimal outcomes.

Long-Term Care and Maintenance

Guidance is provided on protecting the grafted skin from the sun and maintaining proper skincare to prevent future issues.

Outcome Assessment and Additional Treatments

Once healed, the results are assessed, and further interventions may be considered to refine the appearance if necessary.

This meticulous approach ensures each step of the skin grafting process is performed with precision, aiming for the best results while providing comprehensive care and support during the patient’s healing journey.

Skin graft recovery stages

The healing process of skin graft is critical and involves several stages:


  1. Initial Healing Phase (Days 1-7):During this stage, the grafted skin begins to adhere to the recipient site, and the formation of new blood vessels (neovascularization) begins. Dressings are regularly changed to monitor progress and prevent infection.
  2. Early Granulation Phase (Days 7-14):Granulation tissue starts to form beneath the graft as the body initiates the wound-healing process. The grafted area may appear pink or red, and small blood vessels become visible.
  3. Maturation Phase (Weeks 2-8):The grafted skin continues to heal and mature, gradually blending in with the surrounding tissue. The area may still be sensitive and require protection from trauma or excessive pressure.
  4. Long-term Healing (Months to Years):Over time, the grafted skin further matures and remodels, becoming more similar in appearance and texture to the surrounding skin. Scarring may occur, but it often improves in appearance over the long term.
