    They generally want you to be a few years older, and your recession stabilized before they do that. You'll need a couple thousand grafts.

    I am too 21 with basically the same hairline as you. No, I don’t think any reputable surgeon would give you a hair transplant right now. 21 is very young, you’ve probably been balding for max 5 years, imagine what another 5 can do. If you maintain completely, then at 25 you would be a good candidate (assuming you do not have DUPA). You would probably need around 1500graphs ballpark. I know it sucks waiting, I cant wait either.

    the recession of your temporal triangles make your recession look much worse than it is. Id look into reconstructing them when you do go through with the hair transplant.

    Nah that's too much, I would say no more than 1500 grafts

    OP I understand you completely, I know how depressing even few cm of recession can be, but you probably should wait as been said. For now why dont you grow it out a bit (at least the top) and kinda play cover up on the temples?

    Yup, 1500/2000 max should be more than enough to get a good result.

    If he just wants to fill in the temples then 1500 will do. He needs to lower that hairline if he wants to look good, and that's going to be 40-60cm². You want at least 50 grafts/cm².

    Thank you for all the replies, everyone. Now let me raise another question here; if I were to tell you guys that I've always had quite a high hairline and a Norwood 2 hairline ever since I was little (before balding), would that be taken into consideration when I eventually go to a hair transplant office? Would they be willing to lower my hairline, or fill in my temples, even though I've never had much temple hair, or a straight (low) hairline? Thanks :)

    If that's what you want. Just draw it out, measure it, and make the calculations. If you can do it with a reasonable amount of grafts and your hair loss is stable then someone will do it. They use single grafts in the front so you'll need 50 per square centimeter there. Behind it you can figure on 40 for a thin appearance, or 50-60 for a dense hairline. Better to have a higher dense hairline than a low but see through one.
