There is no way to grow grafts, the amount you have is finite and if too many have been taken you'll have to look to other methods to camouflage the area. To grow transplanted hairs there isn't much to do, some methods people say are useful but there's no scientific study to confirm their legitimacy.
Hairs harvested or taken from your donor areas will never grow back. It was harvested and relocated to the area where you wanted more hair.
A.Kumar,After any hair transplant the hair will re-grow at the transplanted area known as the recipient area. The donor is depleted of these grafts and usually do not re=grow. It depends on your donor, how much hair remains, and how visible the thinning will be. Remember that it is very early in the post-transplant period, patience is required at this time. Growth of the transplant should start at around the 4 month post-transplant period.Sincerely,

Grafts taken from the donor area are gone forever and can not be regrown. If your density was low, 4000 FUE grafts may have been too much for your donor area and hence too many grafts.
