Rogaine for a hair transplant
There is no need for minoxidil (Rogaine) after a hair transplant. A well done hair transplant does not need help to grow. Also minoxidil does not impact donor hair at all.
Rogaine is not required to ensure your transplant hair to grow. Some doctors may recommend it so ask your doctor.

Is it necessary to use Rogaine or other meds for hair transplant to grow?
Yiaiapa236,The growth of a hair transplant is not usually dependent on the use of any medical regimen. However, if you have a pattern hair loss then of course the hair in the pattern will be at risk to continue to progress thinning until the full inherited pattern is expressed. Hence, you may want to have a medical regimen to help decrease the risk of hair loss progression. If you are a woman with FPHL Ludwig III, then the medical regimen may be necessary because a small per cent of FPHL progress to Ludwig III, which can have thinning in the "permanent donor zone."Best of luck,
