I want to have a FUE hair transplant, and after discovering vellus hair i'm unsure if I can?

I was doing all the research, deciding where best to do it then my partner pointed out to me that in the areas I thought I was bald there is actually heaps of tiny almost invisinble vellus hair. As far as I am aware this hasn't changed for the past maybe 4/5 years, its got a little worse two years ago but not much. My question is.. Is it possible to still have a hair transplant or are these hairs in the way? I am sure they aren't growing or gaining pigment at all.

It is best to see a doctor for an examination to understand if you are a candidate for surgery.
