Should Laterla slits be used all throughout the hairline or just to blend in the temple points? 

Also do all the doctors recommended on this website use them?

From research that I have read, it seems that the lateral slit technique is used to achieve better coverage with less grafts. As the hair grows out laterally, it can cover more scalp than if it were protruding straight up vertically.  I cant comment as to which surgeons use this method exclusively or specifically on what region on the head  it is used mostly.

It really depends on the merits of each individual case and what is being achieved.  I think many docs use a combination of them.
