FUE hair transplant outcome, is this right? (photos)

Hello I have had a FUE hair transplant to correct my receding hairline and temples In January 2014. The surgeon said i had between 2,000-3,000 hair grafts! However the texture is completely different from my normal hair. It looks very thin and wiry and when i shave my hair you can see where she has implanted the grafts with tiny black dots. Is this normal? what do i do? it looks thin and no volume or thickness. my natural hair is thick and curly.

Different texture in transplanted hairs

Yes, sometimes the transplanted hairs take a more wavy or curly nature and on rare occasions (about 1 in 5000 people) they will become wiry.
