10 months after a hair transplant

By this time what you see is about 90% of what you will end up with. If it is not thick enough you might want to do it again

Thinning hair after transplant?

Without photos I can't be sure.  It sounds as if some of the native hair near where your transplants were placed may have undergone normal thinning.  If you had good results initially, this is probably the case.  You may need to see your surgeon and discuss options.  Medical therapy vs. another transplant procedure would be likely.  Thanks for your question.

Hair thinning 10 months after transplant

This is not a question that can be answered online, especially without the benefit of any before and after photos. You need to return to your surgeon and discuss this in person. That said, unless you were completely bald at the time of your transplant, I think the most likely explanation for what you have observed is the ongoing loss of native hair.
