The importance of hair growth cycles (Hair Transplant)

posted by Dr. Arvind Homepage E-mail, New Delhi, India, 07.12.2007, 15:55

Any doctor as well as patient venturing into BHT must understand the importance of the hair growth cycles.

Much like the other characteristics, the growth cycles too are not significantly altered.

While talking of growth cycles, one needs to know two things -
1. The duration of the anagen and telogen phase,
2. The %age of hair in telogen for that area.

The duration of the anagen/telogen phase plays an important part overall, while the %age of hair in telogen gains increasing importance with each passing hair cycle.

Hair Growth Tables
There are many factors that affect individual hair growth. These growth tables should only be used as a very generalized guide.

Telogen (%) Anagen (%) Duration of Activity

Scalp 15/ 85/ 2-6 years
Eye Brows 90/ 10/ 4 - 8 weeks
Cheeks 40 - 50/ 50 - 60/
Beard (Chin) 40/ 60/ 1 year
Moustache 45/ 55/ 16 weeks
Arm Pit 70/ 30/ 16 weeks
Pubic Area 70/ 30/ months
Arms 80/ 20/ 13 weeks
Legs & Thighs 80/ 20/ 16 weeks

While the scalp donor hair have a growth phase of, an average, 3 years, most body hair have a growth phase lasting approximately 4 to 5 months.

Therefore, unlike scalp to scalp transplants, BHTs will show a marked cyclic variation.
