Follicular unit transplant (FUT) is one of the surgical procedures which has been recently used to repigment a stable vitiligo patch. Single-hair FUT was done for a 30-year-old male with stable vitiligo patch on the upper lip. Repigmentation was noted in 4 weeks and complete pigmentation seen at 8 weeks. No recurrence was noted at the end of 6-month follow-up with excellent colour match. This case is presented to highlight the effectiveness of FUT in focal vitligo patch with leukotrichia.
