After hair transplant surgery, are there any drugs that the hair loss doctors recommend or prescribe to get a good amount of hair growth or is it just surgery that causes the new hairs to grow?
The good news is, transplanted hair will grow on it’s own and does not require any use of hair loss or any other kind of medication. Some physicians believe however, that using Rogaine 5% (minoxidil) for the first 3 months after hair replacement surgery might help “jump start” early growth however, it is not required for the hair implants to grow.
Hair loss drugs such as Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine with minoxidil however, are typically used to help maintain any “native” or natural hair you might have left. Remember that hair transplant surgery does nothing to stop the progressive and unpredictable nature of male pattern baldness.
