I had a skin graft 2 weeks ago after Moh's surgery. Is the scabbing expected? (Photos)
5 months ago
I made an appointment and will be following up with the dermatologist in 2 days. What can I expect will be done if it has failed?

Scabbing after a graft
Because the base of the graft is getting oxygen passively, often the surface doesn't get as much oxygen and therefore crusts over. At this point I wouldn't write it off. There may be good viable skin healing underneath.
Give it 2-3 weeks
