4000 grafts one month ago

I would expect that many of the grafts that you had transplanted will have fallen out by now and that does not mean that the bare areas were not transplanted

Empty patch over the donor area

There are some possibilities of this condition. Delayed punch wound healing, over harvesting or shock loss , etc. All you have to do is returning to your doctor and regular follow-up there.

It is rare to do

transplants at this age but the first thing I would think of is to go in to see your doctor for a follow up
