Will 3-500 grafts make a decent coverage difference ? Hair looks a little better when longer

Invest in toppik; problem solved.

Omg. Please don't go for a transplant. You don't need it. Plus if you force new grafts in that area, the end results will look the same or even worse because of loss of the existing hair due to shock loss. Medicines should be more than sufficient for you.

Have a read up on preventative medications such as finasteride - spend a good few days/weeks looking through forums, threads, clinical studies, research papers, youtube videos etc. and decide whether you feel its something you perceive to be worthwhile and you are comfortable with. i

It may be able to re thicken some of your thinned out hairs if you are able to catch them quick enough. 

Minoxidil is another medication that may or may not be of use to you - again, I encourage you to read up and research it for a considerable amount of time before deciding on pursuing it. 

And like the others have mentioned - concealers such as toppik may be a quick fix option you are comfortable with. 

Other than that, you look in pretty good shape - your hair calibre appears to be very thick and wavy, which bodes well for coverage.

All of that hair you currently have in your thinning crown will be permanently shocked out if you get a HT.  Get on fin, don't get a HT.

I also think that finasteride would potentially benefit you greatly...try that first before any surgery.

@1978matt @gillenator @aaron1234 @Curious25 @Melvin-Moderator @JohnAC71 @Gabreille Nelson Mukhia Thank you all for your response . I feel that maybe that picture , wasn’t the best photo to you. Because my hair is purposely combed to attempt to cover the area up more . The photos added to this response may better explain the small area , I was hoping to conservatively address With 3-500 grafts . Because it’s getting difficult to camouflage now. I am familiar with topik. And even if I addd 3-500 I would still you is but it’s just one  really light spot. That I would like to cover up just a bit. Also I have been on medication for over a year now . I will say it has not regrow any hair but has pretty much halted Here in a stand still position . I am going in for some frontal work in a few weeks . And I just feel that if I’m going to go I should address both areas while there so I’m not worrying about this every day . Thanks

Do NOT get a hair transplant! You can fix that tiny spot with a shake of toppik. You could permanently shock the hair around it and look worse, it’s not worth the risk and cost.

Frontal work? Doesnt look like you have any other loss.

Please consider what everyone has said regarding your crown though.

The strong possibility it could actually end up looking worse if it shocks out the surrounding hair. It will then be a lot more noticeable than it is now.
