Thinning after transplant
In summary you have had 2 hair transplants (6 and 5 yrs ago), and have noticed thinning in the transplanted areas. If you have some suspicion that you have a condition other than male pattern balding you should return to your hair transplant specialist for re-evaluation with blood work and perhaps a scalp biopsy.
If you are losing hair or have thinned over the last 6 years, it would be best to see your doctor for an examination.

Depending on your age, the transplant may thin but should not be lost. You should follow up with your hair restoration surgeon who performed your procedure. If you are concerned with an autoimmune disease, you will need to have a scalp biopsy of the affected areas.
