1. Skype Consult

4. Phone Consult with photos emailed.
Above is what we offer to our out-of-town guests. Of course, we always recommend in-person if possible. Also, you can expect to pay for the FUE technology anywhere from $5 up to $13 per graft. The total depends on how many grafts are needed.
I agree with you that doing the first half of your scalp is a great idea, and in the future you can target your crown or zone 4 as we call it. Also consider thickening your crown by using Minoxidil Topical Solution, and consider Finasteride, atleast the topical version.
Hope this helps.
Cost of hair transplant
It is difficult to assess your condition without the benefit of an in person examination to carefully look at your scalp to rule out any condition that would compromise a good outcome. The two views provided are inadequate also, but it does appear the the hairline and the frontal area has significant hair loss that is covered by the remaining hair falling forward over the thin areas.The number of follicles required can range between 2000-3000 depending on the size of the area involve, the extent of thinning, the size of the alopecia area, and your desire for density. The cost per graft or follicle varies but ranges between $3-5 for FUT and $3.50-10 for FUE in the US. It is best to call and schedule a consultation for a valuable evaluation and precise estimate.
