Hair transplant without finasteride. How many grafts will I need? (Photo)

Based on the pictures you provided it does appear you have a good donor region which can provide you 6000-7000 grafts over its lifetime without it appearing over harvested.
Zone 1-2 (refer to the web link) based on the pictures you provide will require roughly 3200-3350 grafts, zone 3 will require 2000 for high density and 1500 for moderate density. Your crown has just begun to miniaturize and medication options are best. However, you can also restore the crown (zone 4) with a HT procedure as well.
Most critical is that prevention is worth its weight in gold and you must be judicious with the use of your grafts. Considerations of whether you want the permanent scar of FUSS versus FUE harvesting are considerations but most important component of the procedure itself is the artistic skill set of your surgeon.
Good luck and any questions let us know,
