Male breast reduction – or gynecomastia – is a cosmetic procedure to reduce breast size and enhance chest contours in men. Dr. Arroyo offers gynecomastia in Houston at Arroyo Plastic Surgery, to help men attain a more masculine chest that boosts their confidence and improves their quality of life.
Dr. Arroyo's Sedation Method
During your male breast reduction procedure, Dr. Arroyo utilizes a specialized sedation method known as Total Intravenous Anesthesia (TIVA) Sedation. This sedation method is generally viewed as safer and free from the side effects of general anesthesia. Using the TIVA method, patients require less intervenous medication and no intubation during their procedure. TIVA begins with an oral medication to ease nerves and assist with pain management. Next, the patient is brought to the operating room and started on a painless IV to begin comfortable sedation. Throughout the entire process, the patient is closely monitored by Dr. Arroyo and his surgical staff, as patient safety is the number one priority.
