You can do FUE until your donor is depleted. Success rate shouldn't be compromised as long as you didn't get a botched transplant before that caused excessive scaring in recipient.

The average amount of grafts in an individuals donor area is 8,000-10,000 grafts. There are anywhere from 1-3 hairs in a grafts, so the average amount of hairs in the donor is about 16,000-20,000 hairs. You definitly should be able to have additonal procedures. Your surgeon should be able to tell you how much donor area you have left. The yield of the grafts should not be affect as long as the surgeon is using good techniques. FYI the yield rate from FUE's is normally slightly less than the FUT procedure.

I am employed as the patient coordinator and office manager for Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic. Feel free to ask me any questions.
