It looks like the Fin has done a good job . It may be just that the photo doesn't show it as it is , but in the 2nd photo the area looks fine .

I wouldn't touch it for the timebeing personally.

That minor FUE will turn into a major HT

I would like to get my hairline done as well, want my hairline to look like it did before it became mature.
I have been saving cash for i while and can afford 1500 fu....1200 on my hairline and 300 on the crown.
so the real question is, does 300 FU enough?

Thank you for your help!!

Get an HT now, please be prepared to have your life f*cked up forever.. you are NOT a good candidate right now. your crown has a lot of native hair and, if a doctor was unethical enough to go through the procedure, an HT will destroy it. DON'T DO IT.

Listen to this

and you really dont' know how big and bald the crown will get . You 're going to look awfully silly if you fill it in now and it becomes a huge bald spot later on and you have no more hair to fill it in

Thanks for your input! You guys got a good point, but in my case i'm willing to take that risk.

I always looked VERY young for my age (even have to show ID to buy cigarettes) and i'm 33 years old!! :D
Started to loose my juvenile hairline at the age of 22 and sins then it has stayed the same, even got a bit better sins i started using Finastride.

This surgery will change many aspects of my life, today everything i do is controlled by what i can't do because of my hair!
I can't be in water, always wear hat when i'm outside, cant style the hair the way i want and worst of everything i lost my confidence, i used to be so outgoing and charming, now i sit inside all day reading about hair loss.
There is only one option in 2016 sadly enough technology has not improved much in the world of hair loss :( but as they say maybe in 5-10 years from now they will say 5- 10 years hahha. In order for me to get my life back i will make the surgery and hope for the best and if my hair goes south in a couple of years i deal with that then.

I appreciate your warnings!
Thank you guys!!

300 grafts won't accomplish anything for you.

800 grafts might cover the crown but take small procedures rather than one big surgery. The hairline is 1200 to accomplish your desired design. You're very fortunate to have this amount of hair loss.

And what do suggest he do when that small crown potentially turns into big bald spot and he doesn't have enough to fix it

You could further delay any surgery, but if you must choose to undergo a hair transplant, you could achieve a dramatic change in appearance with 150+ grafts. Take a more conservative approach if you want to achieve long-term goals.

After all this time with Finastride and 3 monts of minox i think my crown look very good, and i'm sure it will improve even more within another 3 months.
Im very pleased with what my hair look like today and don't think i need a hair transplant for now, but thank you for your estimation.

Been using minoxidil a while now and finastride around a year now. Look at the fist photos i posted the results are just amazing.

The photo is taken with flash, my hair is strong and glossy just like when i was a teenager.
