Can a sneeze dislodge ARTAS FUE grafts one day following a procedure?
Thank you for writing in with your question. It is very unlikely that a couple of sneezes are going to dislodge grafts from an ARTAS FUE transplant procedure performed the previous day. The follicles are held into the scalp with a fibrin clot, which at 24 hours should not be disturbed by simple sneezing. The sensations in your scalp are almost certainly due to the tugging on the skin during a sneeze, and since the area was anesthetized with needles the day before, the scalp can remain a bit tender for a week or so following a procedure. I hope this information is helpful to you.
Sneezing after an ARTAS FUE Hair Transplant Procedure
I am glad you had a great experience with the ARTAS.
It is unlikely that a sneeze would dislodge or affect any grafts placed yesterday. In the coming few weeks you may notice some shedding which is completely normal - not to worry. Also, a day after an ARTAS procedure it is normal to feel a bit of discomfort or tightness. This can last a week or two.

It is unlikely that sneezing will cause any significant loss of grafts. Over the next week or so you may notice small numbers of grafts being shed. This is normal so please do not be too concerned.

Sneeze rarely dislodge hair follicles. And hair normally will be quite "attached" after three days. However, weight lifting would not be recommended as least 10 days after surgery.
Sneezing post transplant.
Hello. I doubt the common sneezing at 24 hours post procedure would dislodge your grafts. The body acts as glue & the grafts are held into the scalp with the tiny blood scab. Everything should be fine

However, repeated coughing early on post op has a greater potential to disrupt grafts. A few sneezes does not.
