I had a skin graft 2 weeks ago after Moh's surgery. Is the scabbing expected? (Photos)

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

Hello,

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
