I had a hair transplant almost a year ago and I believe that it failed (photo)

I’m so saddened and distraught to see that my hair is very much what it looked like before . I think I may have scarring alopecia or something else that causes the follicles not to grow. I see where the hair has been transplanted but it hasn’t grown at all and has just scarred over. What do you think my next steps should?

Certainly the presence of a scarring alopecia which is active would kill off a hair transplant. To find out, your doctor can biopsy the area and that will let you know if scarring alopecia or some other autoimmune alopecia is responsible for the failure. ?
