Hello- I had a full thickness graft placed on my nose 11/10/17.  Today is one week and it looks like it is adhering nicely. The color is pink/purple.  Has  anyone had a graft and if so, how long before the skin blends in a bit?

Was lentigo maligna melanoma IIA on nose. WLE 10/30/17and graft 11/10/17.

Hi Thinking!

I had one on the top of my head and it took about 6 weeks before it was fully healed and actually started to blend with the rest of my scalp. It was pretty large, about 6cm in diameter so I had a bolster and it took a little while, your's might be much quicker as I'm guessing its not quite as large being on your nose.
