If you have a high hair density in your donor area, where the surgeon harvest the hair follicles, then you might have a greater chance to restore the density by copying it through hair transplant procedure. If you experience partial hairline receding or have taken previous hair transplant, the surgeon may implant additional hair grafts between the existing hair. Time will naturally grow new hair and increase the hairline density after months.

If you’re experiencing total hair loss where the balding is affecting all over your scalp, you might not have sufficient hair donor supply for the procedure. In such case, you may have a fewer chance to increase the density of your hairline. However, some surgeons may offer the Body Hair Transplant where the surgeon harvest the hair follicles from other body parts like beard, mustaches, chest, hand, legs, and so forth. The body hair transplant may increase the density in your hairline but you must be aware that the result won’t be the same as the standard hair transplant procedure.
3.The Availability and Selection of donor’s hair
Hair loss affects any groups of age, even the young people. Taking a hair transplant at a younger age won’t stop the further balding.
