The grafts should be permanent at 10 days. After this time, you can scrub as much as you need to get the scabs off. It’s normal for the hair follicle to fall out along with the scabs. You did not affect the graft itself and it will have no detrimental effect on your hair growth. Dont forget that post op care and washing is very important to have a good result .
You need to contact your doctor and go back for a follow up check. You should not have extensive scabbing.

Scabbing After Transplantation
Thanks for your question! At two weeks, the grafts are securely in place and you can more aggressively shampoo your hair. This will likely cause the scabs to fall out on their own. As always, with any questions, be sure to contact your physician. Best of luck to you!
16 days a terrible scarring
Grafts contain the hair follicles that are transplanted. Your post operative care is terrible as the crusts remain caked onto your head. Be sure not to pick these off as you now have to wait until they fall off with twice daily shampooing and leaving the shampoo on your head for 5-10 minutes and gently massaging the crusts until they fall off in the next few weeks. Your doctors should have told you how to wash your hair immediately after the surgery so you would have looked like the picture in the web reference
FUE scabs - can you just leave them to fall off? (photo)
Thank you for your question. 16 days post procedure, your grafts are nice and secure. In answering your question, you can leave them as is and you won't be causing any harm. Every clinic has their own post-care protocol, and daily washes 2 x day can minimize the scabbing. Everything looks great otherwise. Hope this helps.
