The lower end guys probably just want to do your frontal third and hope that medication (or a future) procedure will rebuild your crown and midscalp.

Trouble is that you're a diffuse case and, whatever promises the clinics make, there's a very good chance that a transplant will kill a good portion of your existing hair... One step forward, two steps back.

I'm not a doctor, but I'd start with medication and then consider a few small FUE cases in areas that have little-to-no existing hair. Closely monitor the permanent shockloss rates and make decisions from there.

It sucks, I know, it really sucks but it's your head and your appearance. Be careful.
