How many grafts to restore hairline?
Finasteride won't help you regain hair that is gone, but I may help strengthen the weak hairs you still have. And although finasteride probably doesn't work as well for a receding hairline as it does for thinning over the top and back of the head, I think most hair loss experts would agree it is worth taking.

Photos show you have a hair line. So asking how many grafts you may need for a hair line doesn't really make sense
Graft requirement for Hairline Reconstruction
Rule of thumb:
1. for every 1 cm of lowering of hairline, it roughly requires about 1000 grafts at a density of 75 fu/cm2.
2. If you make a fist and place your fist down on a table, the area it covers roughly needs 1500 grafts for moderate coverage.

How many grafts to enhance my hairline?
Finesteride works best to slow or stop progression of hair loss. Regrowth occurs most commonly in the crown area in about 26%, and only rarely in the front 2%. It is difficult to assess your hair line without the benefit of an in person evaluation, or photos showing the hair being combed back to expose the thinning. It looks to me that small touch up with 500 to 1000 grafts should be all that is needed. I would recommend that you consider finasteride if you are not currently taking it to help insure the future progression.
