I have had very thin temples since childhood and recently have seen some thinning in the hairline -- it is not as solid as I'd like it to be. I have pretty thick hair over all otherwise. I went to consult for an FUE and was denied a transplant to fill out the temples/partial hairline. The surgeon said that the donor hair is much thicker than the hair in the front/crown area and would draw more blood to the new grafts which would make hairloss worse and speed it up in the surrounding area as result because the rest of the follicles would not get enough blood supply or something along those lines. I don't know if this makes sense but it does definitely concern me and put me off a HT. Is there any truth to this "new" logic/theory? Any suggestions or anyone that has had their hairline restored? Any feedback would be appreciated. Many thanks.
