Autologous cultured melanocyte transplantation is a safe and effective cellular regenerative surgical treatment modality for the lesions of stable vitiligo. Research continues to improve the efficacy of cell transplants by refining the procedure. The method of dressing used to secure the cell suspension over the treated site is vital in deciding the extent of repigmentation. The authors propose a simple modification in the dressing technique, which provides better graft adherence and results in uniform repigmentation, especially on challenging areas such as joints and other curved body surfaces.
