If I use a partial hair piece for my crown can I transplant as many follicles as possible to my hairline to be a permanent NW1?

I've read that the biggest problem with hair systems is the time and effort you have to spend getting the hairline to look natural. Could I just get a permanent NW1 hairline via transplants and cover my crown with a more easily manageable partial piece (like a yarmulke wig, if you will)? And would this strategy allow me to ignore finasteride altogether?

Transplanting with a hair piece

Yes, you can receive a transplant using a hair piece on the crown while receiving grafts in the front of your hairline. Make sure the hair piece is very clean
