If I ruined eyelash transplant. Can I get a new one again?

So I've been keeping my eyelash surgery a secret because I don't want judgement right now with my parents and at work. So I have been washing my eyes out a lot to get rid of scabs faster and putting on makeup to hide bruises. But it has only been 9 days. I'm sure I ruined my transplant because the scabs are coming lose with hair in some parts. I suffered a little by trichotillomania. So had gaps and also every day use of fake eyelashes made them worse than they were.

Ruined my eyelash transplant

If you did something to ruin your eyelash transplant, yes you can do it again.  This time do not damage the transplant as you did the first time
