FUE hair transplant done in June 2016. On october 24th 2016 (approx. 4 months+) i went for my haircut. During pre hairwash the barber used his nails in between while massaging the shampoo over the scalp. At this point of time by mistake he actually scratch the transplanted area and a little bit of blood was seen over the scalp. Are my grafts damaged?

Scratching the scalp at 4 months post op
At 4 months, I would not expect that you can damage the grafts as they are much deeper than the surface you scratched
4 months post op
The grafts should be permanent and secure at 10 days post op. It is not that easy for the grafts to get damaged by now . All the best

At 4 months post op of a hair transplant you can't damage the grafts by scratching them. I suspect maybe you an had ingrown hair and the scratching simply caused it to bleed. Good luck!
