Question...

Can a graft fall out at the 8 day point, as part of the initial shedding of the grafts? Haven't done anything crazy except relaxing on vacation but I was looking at the grafts and looks like possibly one fell out

 

If one did fall out, would it bleed or show redness where it fell out? doesn't show much of either

Yes, the hairs could start shedding by day 8. The grafts should be well rooted by now so I wouldn't worry. If you did lose a graft you would see the bulb on the end and it would be bloody.

Ny,

 

Grafts normally anchor between day 7 and 10. Because of this, shedding a a portion of a newly anchored follicle at day 8 is definitely possible.

I didn't see any blood on my scalp or any hair so I was curious if one just shedded as it should during this process

 

thanks again!

There was a Bernstein study that found that after 9 days the grafts were very secure.

1,145 FUE grafts (3,152 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - August 2018

763 FUE grafts (2,094 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - January 2020
