ABSTRACT: The flip-top transplantation (FTT) method provides an important option for the treatment of depigmentation. It enables any physician to treat stable areas of depigmentation using equipment that is readily available and easy to use. To date, this method has resulted in the spread of pigmentation from each graft and has caused no visible scarring. FTT is best suited for treating localized areas of stable depigmentation where the cosmetic result is a priority.
