I have done 3 years of research in vitiligo. By the description it seems to be a case of segmental vitiligo which amenable to surgical treat,ment. Now the surgical treatment of vitiligo has gone beyond just plastic surgery. Tell me since how long has the lesion been stable?? I need to talk to you personally before I can suggest whether surgery is agood option for you or not as it is ahighly individualised treatment. you can have a consultation with me regarding the same. Also if you can send your pictures on, it will be helpful in maiing the final decision. For your information, the available surgical options for eylids are SBG, melanocyte transplant and eye lash transplant.
