Can I use Minoxidil after a hair transplant?

Use of Minoxidil
Prior to hair transplant, physicians frequently place patients on therapies to help slow existing hair loss including minoxidil. In the peri-procedural period, use of minoxidil may cause scalp irritation which can lead to itching and possibly graft injury. Discuss with your surgeon their protocol for use of these medications around the time of hair transplant. Generally, following a healed hair transplant, the continued use of these therapies is not contraindicated.
It is best to ask your surgeon about post operative care as each doctor has their unique regimen.
