In which phase are you at risk of losing grafts?

Hi,

I've read a lot about graft survival, and while some surgeons suggest that 90% survive, etc., I'm curious about the phase when the grafts aren't surviving and when they are completely secured, growing forever.

 

Is it after 1 week? Is it after shedding? When is it?

Usually at around one week grafts roots are well secured inside.

So all of my hairs before the shedding in week 3 will grow? (supposed to)

I've heard some claim about losing grafts because of lack of blood supply, dense packing, etc... when does it happen?

It never happens with a good surgeon

please focus on his first part of question. I think he means, that if the implanted grafts grow the first hair direct after surgery, they are meant to be strong enough to survive and will grow strong terminal hairs after the shedding and re-growth in 3-4 months. This is my questions as well as you don't find any information about this survival rate in this forum or internet
