Combination FUT/FUE

Combination FUT/FUEs

To safely achieve maximal numbers of grafts utilizing donor hair from where it is genetically permanent (in AGA), a combination of both FUT and FUE donor removal is optimal. Dr. Keene can utilize the linear excision to the extent she considers safe for closure, then take additional grafts using the FUE method of donor removal.

This combination technique can also be utilized to limit the linear excision to specific areas. For example, if you know you can’t limit your exercise to avoid stretching the back of your head, but want to take advantage of aspects of the FUT procedure that allow more grafts in a single session, Dr. Keene can focus the FUT excision to focus on areas that are less likely to stretch and use the FUE method to obtain the remaining grafts.
