Yes, all ok for FUT and PRP on the same day.

The answer is yes, all good. In fact I use PRP, Finesteride and Minoxidil to maintain the effects of FUT. To have both FUT and PRP on the same day is safe, and sensible. 

Future studies may show a higher viable rate of transplanted hairs with growth factors and cytokines from PRP.

Hair Transplant and PRP

It is safe to have FUT hair transplant and PRP on different areas the same day.  In addition, you should consider having PRP in the transplanted area at a later date.  Best, Dr. Green

FUT and PRP same day

Yes it is completely safe to do PRP and FUT the same day for both transplanted area and non transplanted area. I do this with most of my patients.

PRP and transplant same day?

In my opinion, it is safe to have PRP and hair transplant the same day. In addition, you may want to consider the PRP treatments at some interval to keep your existing hair from miniaturizing. In addition, Transplanted hairs do extremely well with PRP maintenance. Hope this helps. Good luck.
