Is 2000 Hair Transplant Grafts Enough for my Balding Crown?

Question:

I had a hair transplant done 2 weeks ago and my scalp looks healthy and has healed well. Hair shedding of the transplants have just started. Do you think 2000 grafts will give me good coverage in the crown as this was the main target area for the grafts?

Answer:

Without seeing photos of your scalp before and immediately after your hair transplant procedure, it would be virtually impossible for me to give you an idea of what 2000 grafts will accomplish for you. Feel free to send me some photos and I'll be able to give you my opinion.

Generally speaking, the crown has been traditionally called the "black hole" for follicular unit grafts. Whereas a little can usually go a long way of making a bald spot disappear via coverage, it takes a large quantity of grafts to give the crown any real appearance of density.
