Lightly Touching Grafts
If there's no visible sign that anything is wrong, then I doubt you could have messed up any of the grafts. 4 days is a decent amount of time so the grafts shouldn't be overly sensitive to light contact like you described, and at this point it would take a little effort to really cause them damage.

4 days post op
In my practice I advice my patient to not touch the recipient area for ten days because the grafts became secure within 7-10 days . In your case if there is no bleeding , nothing to worry . All the best
