How long does it take to drape patients for a 3 hour rhinoplasty surgery. Is draping time included in the surgery time or is it extra time..
Draping time is going to vary based on who is draping, what the preferred draping is, and so many other factors. As for surgery time, the definition of start of surgery is skin incision or introduction of a scope if there isn't an incision. Draping time would never be included in the actual surgical time.
Draping is included in the time between TOTS and start of surgery.
