Hi,Vipul thanks for posting your query
transfer is increasingly being used with success for stable vitiligo
As far as side effects of melanocyte transplantation
for stable vitiligo are concerned , they are almost negligible . It is a minimally invasive procedure and no hospitalisation is required.
Since the upper layer of skin is abraded, there are chances of infection or post procedure pain for which antibiotics and pain killers are given.
The result is fair enough. pigmentaion appears in about 2 months. For face and at the fingers and toes the results are lower than other areas and there is chance of recurrance.
You may get it done for a single patch and see the result and then go ahead for other patches .This will lower you anxiety
Hope this helps you
