Dr. Arroyo’s Unique Sedation Method
During a blepharoplasty procedure, Dr. Christian Arroyo uses a specialized form of sedation. Rather than the traditional intubation method, the doctor uses Total Intravenous Anesthesia (TIVA) Sedation. This form of sedation requires fewer intravenous medications during surgery and allows the patient to breathe independently. It is also free from side effects such as nausea and pain associated with general anesthesia.
