How long after an endoscopic Brow Lift did you return to your normal activities?

How many weeks after your endoscopic brow lift did you return to your normal activities?  I'm a runner and also do yoga. My surgeon said in about 6-8 weeks, but others on this site have said it took months, and some even say years, and some even say they cannot do normal activities now.  If you had an endoscopic brow lift, how long did you have to wait until you could get back into your fitness routine?Thanks

I had mine Mine has almost been a year and I'm still miserable ! George holland on real self says it been 10 years. Do much research before having a brow lift. Yelp your doctor and see if there are any complaints. Good luck.

I had the surgery almost 6 months ago, and am still having itching. I have cut my hair on the top of my head to 1/4" so medications go on the scalp and not my hair. I look and feel awful. Don't get me wrong, I do look younger and my skin is tighter on the cheeks and neck. But he admitted he decided not to do the forehead lift AFTER making the 10" incision. I was taking 8-10 Norco per day, plus Sudafed and Benadryl, because hi clipped off a small piece of cartilage on my ear and I couldn't even touch it for 3 months severe pain. That has subsided, however it it always itching. NEVER sign a release just to get a partial or full refund, since I now have no recourse and cannot even mention his name online to warn others

I really want a brow lift - my eyebrows are very uneven and all the surgeons I've talked to said the only way to make them more symmetric is a brow lift. But I am terrified of what can go wrong. I can't imagine your daily life dealing with the itching and other things people have said. I'm do sorry you are going thru this agony. Did you go back to him for the itching? What does he say? Does he know why you are itching so much?

I'm am so sorry. Isn't horrible? My life will never be the same! I pray you get better. I think you can yelp him to get the word out.

I can't believe he severed your ear like that. So awful...he really should refund you your money.

Because he did not do the brow lift procedure after making the incision, he offered me the cost of the work back. This was 3 months later and I had to confront him, though, he never would have mentioned he didn't do it and still charged me.

Today is my 36th anniversary being married to my wonderful husband. My head is numb and I just want to be left alone. The worse anniversary !

So sorry to hear that. How long has it been since the endoscopic brow lift? Is the numbing improving? Congratulations on being together for 36 years.

It's been almost a year since my surgery. The numbing is the same. Nothing has improved.
