How to maintain an even skin tone post facial plastic and reconstructive surgery?
Would involve extra charge and hassles
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone through your wish but I am not sure whether it would be feasible. The skin color is imparted by a pigment called melanin which is secreted by melanocytes. The skin that is being grafted, has a melanocyte concentration of more or less the same as on other parts of your body. So, after the reconstructive surgery, the skin color is unlikely to be much different. Changing the skin tones would therefore involve additional procedures and would therefore involve additional hassles. It might be practical to go for it as an independent and subsequent procedure but you need to discuss with your plastic surgeon/cosmetic surgeon about the feasibility.
