Can FUT and FUE techniques be combined during one surgery?

Yes. FUT (follicular unit transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Excision) can be combined and be performed on the patient during the same surgery.

Often if a patient would like additional grafts and the doctor does not feel comfortable taking out any larger of a donor strip, they can offer FUE to obtain several hundred additional follicular unit grafts.
