I have good density of hair on recipient area. Will it decrease after hair transplant done for temple sides?

If you had a hair transplant to an area, it would logically increase the density to the area.
If you had a hair transplant to an area, it would logically increase the density to the area. There may be shock hair loss to the surrounding hairs but that is the risk of surgery you need to discuss with your doctor.
Will the density thin out after a hair transplant?
The transplanted hair follicle can temporarily shed after they are transplanted. The hair in the recipient area should not be affected with careful transplantation techniques employing very precise angles and direction.It is also important to avoid using too much epinephrine in the thinning area especially in females.

Density of the recipient area
The density of the recipient area will remain as it was transplanted, but because of shedding that happens after a hair transplant, you may not see that density again until the hair grows out at 4-6 months
