How long after surgery can I return to work or exercise?

Most patients can return to work within one week of surgery unless they do hard physical labor such as lifting or operating heavy machinery. These people sometimes need to be off work 2-3 weeks or longer. For those patients that like to exercise most of them can resume light exercise within the first week after surgery. Dr. Payne starts patient out on easy to do cardio exercises and then progresses to weight lifting if they include that in their activity. Patients who enjoy yoga can usually resume most of the activity required with yoga but may need to refrain from anything that makes their breasts hurt for a few weeks after surgery. The majority of patients are back doing a fairly demanding exercise program within 4 weeks of surgery.

After surgery will I be spending the night at Dr. Payne's surgery center or will I be going home?

The great majority of patients will be discharged home the same day of surgery. All patients done in Dr. Payne's facility will go home. If you require an overnight stay, your procedure will be performed at the Stanislaus Surgical Hospital.

Where does Dr. Payne perform his surgery?

For most patients their surgery is performed at Dr. Payne's Surgery Center in his office. The surgery center is Medicare and State of California certified. When you visit the office we will give you a tour of the operating room if you would like. Occasionally patients are operated upon at Stanislaus Surgery Center. This is usually because of insurance issues or overnight stay.
