How long does it take for body hair transplant to grow? It is now six months and on the part of my head where scalp hair transplants were placed there is very good growth but the part of my head where 500 body hairs were placed, only about 10 hairs grew.
The growth from body hair should be the same as scalp hair in the time that they appear but only at a 50 percent rate as 50 percent of body hairs are in the Telogen (sleep mode) state at any one time. This 50 percent Telogen aspect of body hair is a permanent reality for these transplants. Head hair has telogen for about 10% of its life and its cycled life is about 3 years. Many doctors are not skilled in body hair transplants so growth may not always be as good as grafts do not come out as well when they are extracted with body hair transplants unless the surgeon has the needed experience with it.
