You have a Class 6 balding pattern with a persistent forelock. If the forelock holds up until you are 35+, then a general estimate of at least 2,500 grafts would be appropriate because the middle of the frontal hairline will not have to be transplanted on the first round. But if the forelock disappears after the transplant, then a hole may appear where the forelock was. This area will HAVE TO BE TRANSPLANTED because if it is not, then your hairline will have a visible hole in it. I always tell my patients that genetic balding is a progressive process, and this discussion is such an example. Even the hair in the existing balding pattern will eventually fall out, possibly requiring still another surgery. In some family lines, forelocks tend to last. If it lasts until you are 35, then you may fall into that category.
