I have had multiple old plug type hair transplants. Can I have a strip FUT to remove some of the circular scars while using the follicles left between and also do some FUE’s in the same procedure?
Doing FUT and FUE in the same procedure is reasonable on certain patients.
It can definitely allow the doctor to obtain more follicular units in one session.
A patient having had prior work/plug type hair transplants would not exclude them from having both of these techniques performed in a single procedure.
It really depends on what kind of remaining donor hair the patient has, the laxity of the scalp, and what are patient’s expectations.
