So, what is surgery to lighten skin? Skin bleaching for African American women may be complex depending with the actual tone of the skin.

Permanent Skin Lightening Surgery

Natural home remedies for bleaching dark skin for African Americans are somewhat temporary and slow. Commercial products are fair at getting results. Creams such as Procelain skin bleaching cream are said to be very effective for dark spots and hyperpigmented dark skin. However, this is for skin lightening without surgery. The cost of permanent skin bleaching is a bit high compared to the commercial products.

Permanent skin bleaching surgery procedure is performed at the dermatologist’s or surgeon’s clinic. Your doctor will make an appointment with you and discuss everything that is of concern when you want to bleach your skin permanently. It is good for:

  • Lightening dark spots on skin that are stubborn and won’t go away
  • Permanent skin lightening procedure is applied for scars
  • Getting rid of birthmarks such as port wine stains
  • Uneven skin tone and permanent discolorations or hyperpigmentation
  • Getting rid of freckles and brown spots

    Celebrities who have gone for skin lightening surgery
    Celebrities too do whiten their skins.

The cost of permanent skin whitening surgery is not comparable to the temporary solutions. Below, we will look at the various costs in the United States, UK, India and other places. For instance, one reviewer noted that permanent laser skin lightening for eczema spots cost her about $2300.

Skin Lightening Surgery Cost

What is the price of skin lightening surgery? How much does it cost to undergo a skin whitening surgery? The cost of laser melanin surgery to get a lighter complexion depends on the clinic and the area you want to have lightened. The following areas may have different costs:

  • Dark armpit lightening surgery
  • Face freckle removal laser skin lightening
  • Full body skin brightening
  • Arms and legs plastic surgery for skin lightening

What is the average cost of melanin reduction surgery? The cost of laser surgery is always high and may not be affordable for many people. Full body skin brightening may cost you a fortune. However, localized skin lightening surgery can cost you from $500 upwards.

Cosmetic surgery for skin lightening in the UK and in India have different costs. In the United Kingdom, a dermatologist may charge you from 400 pounds to do a localized skin whitening for areas such as the face, armpits, arms and legs. What about full body skin lightening surgery cost? This one, whether in the US or elsewhere, the price is nothing less than $3000.

From most of the reviews and pictures before and after, African American women can lighten their skin surgically and end up as fair skin toned. For some people, the laser surgery is to remove dark spots and hyperpigmented areas that make one to have uneven skin tone. These before and after pictures from reviews and testimonials will help you see how it works.

Full Body Skin Lightening Plastic Surgery

Full body skin lightening plastic surgery is possible. There are other methods of reducing melanin uniformly on the body, including injections and bleaching pills for black women. However, surgery is also an option, although it is important to note that it is much more expensive to go for a full body laser skin lightening to bleach your skin 2 or 3 or 5 shades.

The advantage of having the entire body lightened is that you don’t have to end up with uneven skin tones, such as having arms lighter than legs, or your face being lighter than your neck and rest of the body. A full body melanin reduction can prevent this.

Skin Lightening Surgery Procedure

What is the procedure of skin bleaching surgery? How do they do it and how does it work? Is it painful? Does it have side effects? Is it safe? There are many things you need to consider first. Your safety, side effects of skin lightening surgery and whether insurance covers for such cosmetic surgery procedures.

Permanent Skin Lightening Surgery
Skin bleaching surgery is permanent.

In any system that you will choose, an office treatment or clinic visit is necessary. Your doctor will determine how much melanin to reduce to be able to get the skin tone you want and then use laser beams to reduce the concentration of melanin in the skin. By the end of the procedure, your skin will be whiter. You may need two or three further appointments which may involve corrections of evenness and aftercare procedures. Remember you may feel a little bit uncomfortable during and after laser surgery to whiten dark skin.

Cryosurgery to Reduce Melanin Pigment

An alternative method for whitening sensitive areas of the skin such as genitals is cryosurgery. The method uses liquid nitrogen, which destroys melanin cells and allows the skin to regenerate a new epidermis with a lighter shade. Wikipedia points out that lightening of dark spots and freckles can be done using cryosurgery as well. However, it is important to note that the efficacy of this surgery will depend on the depth of the melanin pigment, meaning that different people could get different dark skin whitening results with the same surgical procedure.
