Naturally Thin hair or balding?

I was wondering, could a otherwise healthy individual just have naturally low hair density on certain part of their scalp , or is it always a sign/degree of early balding? If it is balding, how long will it take before it became apparent? I have heard cases where people noticed thinning in their early 20s but still have the same amount hair for more than a decade, is something like this normal and common place?

Differences between “Organic Hair Transplantation” and classical hair transplantation :

A chemical mixture is used in the classical hair transplantation method in order to increase the volume of the scalp. This process helps surgeon to work comfortably however it was observed that these chemicals also harm the scalp tissue. This result in decreased viability of new transplanted hair grafts.

However a mixture containing adipose derived stem cells is injected to the scalp in the “Organic Hair Transplantation” for the same purposes. Injection of this mixture result in rejuvenation of the scalp without causing any harm. Surgeon can also work more comfortably after the injection of the mixture since the volume of the scalp is increased

Thinning and maybe balding?

I am not sure if you are male or female. You should be examined by a doctor to get a diagnosis. You can do this via the internet, but need to send photos and give more history. Recommendations can not be made until that happens.
