From what I can see from the photos, your condition is not a typical case of adrogenic alopecia.  You would not be considered an ideal candidate for hair restoration surgery, however you would be considered a “GOOD” candidate. It is of the upmost importance that you continue taking Finasteride as you have done if you have not experienced any considerable side effects. This is of the upmost importance in preparation for the most optimum outcome of the surgery. Of course an actual consultation with an experienced FUE surgeon will give you an actual surgical plan and an accurate estimate of the grafts necessary considering your calculated density, density, hair caliber and number of hairs per follicle.

Bercause of your curly hair, it is difficult to identify the pattern of hair loss. Right now I would first get a HAIRCHECK examination of your hair and see if you are balding and then go on the drug finpecia
