    Default Is Dead Skin Normal After Getting a FUE Hair Transplant?

    Will be 3 weeks since the surgery tomorrow (Tuesday)

    After I shower I see a lot of what looks like dead skin around the transplanted area.
    I believe that it is the skin that was tranplanted with the grafts.

    I started to lightly rub them when i shampooed with my finger tips.
    I saw hairs coming out as well as some white skin.

    I know that it is normal for the hair to fall out and that most (if not all) will fall out and then new hair will start to grow in a few months.

    I believe that grafts should be 100 % safe now and I can start scrubing harder to remove the dead skin.

    Is it normal to have this dead skin after a fue or did i not shampoo well?
    Am i good to scrub harder to remove the dead skin?

    Thank you.

    The best thing would be to contact your surgeon in case you're having complications with your skin as it may vary depending on different conditions so!

    It's normal, and expected. Some clinics will place their grafts elevated above the plane of the scalp for a smooth scalp along with the final result. Always check such questions with your clinic but you're fine.
