Highly unlikely, you would have to really hit the grafts hard to damage them past 4 days. The only way I see a graft becoming dislodged at 6 days is if the graft is attached to scabs and they become dislodged.

Thanks, but what I’m asking is if grafts can still be damaged even if they are not dislodged? Like if they are rubbed or tugged at can their newly formed blood supply be damaged? Anything that could compromise yield
