The FUT+FUE combined technique has the potential of providing the most donor hair at once.
In some situations it may be a good option to use FUT and FUE together. These situations are:
- 1. When a very large number of grafts such as 5000 grafts are needed. Combining both techniques can give a high number of grafts while putting less pressure on the donor area than pushing the limits of a single technique.
- 2. When either from multiple previous hair surgeries or an advanced hair loss pattern, the donor area is very limited, to be able to get a satisfactory number of grafts.
- 3. When the goal is to improve a previous bad FUT scar at the same time harvesting grafts for a hair transplant.
