Minoxidil After a Hair Transplant
At our practice, we always recommend minoxidil after a hair transplant as we find it is synergistic and helps enhance the results. The time when to start will vary from practice to practice and I don't think its crucial for influencing your long term result. At our practice, patients start using minoxidil 7 days after transplant. Hope this helps.

When t start minoxidil after surgery?
hairy monkey,I recommend using minoxidil/propecia before surgery to strengthen the miniaturizing follicles, especially if you are working in a diffuse thinning patient. This helps prevent post-surgical shock loss. Also if there is re-growth of thin areas, this might decrease the size of the potential area to be transplanted.
