Hi guys, okay after 2 months post op, of my FUE procedure with Dr.Armani ( which was a great experience ), I had to stop using Minoxidil as instructed by my doctor because of side effects.
I usually weight between 156-158 pounds, but after using Minoxidil for 2 months my weight shot up to 180 pounds! It was all water weight and it made my face puffy and swollen, aswell as made my heart feel weird at times, and made my face around my eye’s look like a warewolf.
Im a few days past 3 months post op, and since quitting the minoxidil, i lost all the water weight and am now back to my original weight.
But Dr.Armani instructs his patients to use Minoxidil twice per day for the first year post op then once per day for another year. I cant even use 2% minox once per day my body just super absorbs the stuff and it doesnt agree with my system at all.
Anyways, so im worried that i wont get as good a final result because of this. I am using Dr.Armani’s hair thinning tonic and Folligen as replacements, but they dont stimulate hair growth nearly as good as minox.
So has anybody had FUE done and didnt use Minoxidil, and still have an amazing result? Am i going to get less of a final result because i cant use Minoxidil? Im really worried about this.
I was told that the purpose of the minoxidil post op is to ensure good blood flow and nutrient absorbtion to the recepient area. There are other topicals that can acheive this i beleive.
Anyways, some insight and help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
