Your age is important ??You may have retrograding alopecia on back of your head .. But , I saw thinning of hair in donor area in some of my patients after years of surgery . I think it was related with genetic of people .

There are many things that can cause this including alopecia areata, Diffuse unpatterned alopecia, etc. You need to meet with a doctor to find out the diagnosis with a good examination of your hair and scalp
