Exactly. A lost graft would hurt a little as well, and the general rule is no blood means everything is a-okay.

Default Update

Almost 3 weeks post op. Shedding over I think. Now, in many places where I shed, there are tiny black dots that feel like stubble. They are shorter than the hair was when it was put into the recipient area. I attached some pics, you can see the black dots. They aren't pimples, and I can't be sure but I think they're growing.

I healed entirely within 4 days. The redness in the photo is not visible with the naked eye in normal lighting. Nobody has any idea I've had work done; could the early healing and rigorous post-op procedure I followed maybe indicate early refrowth?

Quite possibly. Only time will tell though, tbh, so just remain cautiously optimistic that you're an early grower - and be especially grateful that you're able to move forward with nobody being the wiser about your procedure.

Could you please share your post-op procedure?

Post op I immediately started applying aloe vera in the form of a spray, as well as a product called HairCycle post-op biotin spray that someone recommended to me. I also applied the ATP spray that the clinic provided. I lost my scabs in 3-4 days. Redness mostly gone at the 7 week mark.

Here is my procedure review at the link below. I have had some shock loss I think and someone said it currently looks strange so I'm very worried. If anyone wants to check it out and chime in I would be thankful.
