Default FUE transplant and SMP Combo?

Hi all,

I am interested in getting a fue transplant, possibly 2000 grafts into the temples and mid-scalp, and then another 1000 or so into the crown. I know the crown chews up grafts like crazy, so I would also like to do an SMP procedure (with Milana @ Beauty Medical) to give the illusion of increased density (particularly over the crown).

However, I live in Australia, and flights to Europe and the US are expensive (approx $2k-$2.5k return). Ultimately, I would like to get the FUE transplant and SMP in the one trip. Is this at all possible, or should a FUE and SMP procedure be spread months apart? Obviously FUE should be done first?

Any info on this would be appreciated!

Cheers

I know a patient did an inking job with GLI one month before doing a FUE with SMG. I would definitely do the inking first. One trip might be tough to do.
