8 days after transplant

Shedding grafts is a normal process after a hair transplant. Sometime every hair and every graft sheds and does not return until the hair goes into anagen which is usually 5-6 months after a hair transplant is done

Missing FUT follicles after 8 days

thebigloaf,It is important to take care of the newly transplanted follicles. After the first week usually those follicles are well healed and embedded nicely in the scalp. Would recommend to protect the transplant from prolonged Sun exposure for the next three or four months. Wearing a hat should not pose any danger at this time.
