Did I manage to damage my hair, after a hair transplant?
Que: I got my FUT procedure done, exactly one week back, and by the 5th day, the scabs had started to dry out, which is when I started to pick them. By the 7th day, the scabs are all gone. I made sure that I didn’t scratch the scabs, while trying to remove them, but I have a slight fear that I might have damaged my hair grafts.
Ans: The formation of the scabs after a hair transplant is normal and in most cases, these are removed after a week. The main point while removing the scabs is that the roots should not be damaged. If you have been careful and have not pulled out any of the roots, then there is nothing to worry about.
