After shampooing gently using the cup method 24 hours later, I noticed a hair graft with skin still attached laying on top of my hair just as I was starting to comb my hair. I didn’t see any blood anywhere when I checked. Could this be a lost graft or could the follicle still be intact under the skin?
It’s probably a lost graft. Have your doctor examine the area. At 24 hours after surgery, the grafts haven’t taken root yet. If the loose grafts are caught early enough and in the right circumstance, your doctor can usually push it back in and save it. Otherwise, it is expected you will lose a few grafts no matter how careful you are.
