Is it normal for my skin graft to be hard and bumpy? (Photo)

It's been 3 weeks since my plastic surgery skin graft and I'm concerned cause it's not flat and feels hard. I see my surgeon next week for my one month check up.

Skin graft

Thank you for your question and photo. It appears that the skin graft has "pin cushioned".  This sometimes can happen and I would talk with your surgeon about how to correct it, there are a few options including shaving it down and injecting it with steroid.
