How many grafts will I need and what should be the cost
Hair transplant cost
While cost may be a driving factor in your decision, you have to make sure you are getting quality care for your money spent. However, if the cost is the only factor, whatever you pay for a bad hair transplant is way too much.
Herpes vs Big Foot
There are also different types of surgery (FUE, FUT) that has different fees associated with it.
The best advise is don't focus on the cost.
If you trust the doctor and believe that the doctor will provide great results, that is priceless.
A bad hair transplant surgery is like Herpes. It's for life (no matter how much you spent)
A good hair transplant surgery is like Big Foot. It's hairy and no one will believe it. (no matter how much you spent)

How much does a hair transplant cost
If you have FUE, the doctor usually cuts the grafts and does all the work. The cost here may be $8.00 per graft or more. Rarely, some plastic surgeons and other doctors will allow assistants to cut the grafts out of the back of you head and the cost for this will be less because the doctor is not doing the work.
I think for strip surgery, you were quoted high especially since this procedure leaves a potentially ugly strip scar on the back of you head. If this is FUE and the doctor is doing the extractions, it is a very good deal.
Of course, what you really need to focus on is quality. It is more costly to have to do it right after you had done it wrong. It is far better to do it right from the beginning. Find a good physician and pay his price.
You are a NW 3V and you are moving to a NW 5. You may not be able to finish the back or crown or vertex of your scalp. You should focus on the front for now. I think you will make great improvement with 1500 to 1800 grafts. You may not need 2200 at this time. You have room for this much, but I don't know that it will be any better than 1500 to 1800 right now.
