Combining FUE and SMP

Many times the transplant does not provide enough hair to cover an extensive balding pattern because the donor supply density is too low for the high demand of the balding pattern. When that happens, the surgeon who is skillful with both hair transplants and SMP will know how to use the transplants to form a good foundation so that the SMP will make the hair look much fuller.

Here is an example: The picture on the right has the exact same amount of hair as the picture on the left except that SMP was added to fill in the thinning hair.

    If the balding pattern is fully developed would you recommend SMP before a transplant or if it best combined only after the transplant?

    Thank you.
