- - They have long sleeves with elastic cuffs and they maintain the sterile barrier between the surgical field and the surgeon's clothes or exposed arms.
- - They are made from impermeable material or a water-resistant, tightly woven fabric, and have been shown to decrease bacterial counts in the operating room.
- - The effect of contamination via this route, as reflected in the development of surgical site infection, is not known.
- - Sterile surgical gowns are generally not necessary for most dermatologic procedures but may be considered protective gear for liposuction or other procedures with expected exposure to body fluids.
