Not a rich donor site for hair surgery
When the donor site is not rich enough to perform a hair surgery it is better to let it go and find other solutions.
Considering your age , stage of hair loss and the medical examination result for your donor site; it is better to say please check alternative solutions.
If your doctor who has examined you that you do not have enough donor hair, then you are not likely a candidate
Different options for you
You can start a procedure to redefine your hair line. Keep in mind the importance of a non-surgical treatment to slow or even stop your hair loss. I have had patients that have very scarce donor and the solution has been extracting body hair or facial hair to be used as a filler. That way your hairline will look as natural and density will be added.Best of lucks!

Significant hair loss
Hair loss like yours is aggressive, and to treat it you have to be aggressive right back. See a reputable hair doctor in your area to confirm you have androgenetic alopecia. Then start by stabilizing your hair loss with medications: finasteride, minoxidil, ketoconazole shampoo, and LLLT/PBMT. Hair transplant can work, but it is likely the last option and FUE is not usually the preferred technique.
FUE at 23years age
Already reaching grade v balding pattern at the age of 23 years ..is always expected to reach grade VII or even more ..and most of the surgeons doing FUE with patients of early 20s...always go beyond permanent donor areas while extracting the grafts and in FUE you could never treat grade 7 baldness ........at this satge you should go for FUT treatments to save the donor hair for future planing.
