I had a FUE transplant in March 2015. Now in Nov 2016 I have noticed the area is thinning. It was originally a success

It is best to ask your surgeon about your surgical results since your doctor would know what was actually done.

Thinning of the donor area with FUE
This can be the result of overharvesting. If you have a moth-eaten appearance of the donor area, then you donor area may have been over-harvested. THE SSSI's probably made nbo difference
Surrounding area thinning
I would say that it is more likely that the area that was not transplanted in the surrounding area is what is actually thinning. This is quite common and to be expected. I would go and see a hair restoration specialist near you to get a full assessment and a plan to slow down or stop any further hair loss
