The Omni-Tract surgical retractor in abdominoplasty--taking the weight from the surgeon.
ABSTRACT Abdominoplasty remains one of the more labour-intensive procedures in plastic surgery. Frequently the plastic surgeon is operating without assistance and would benefit from support in retracting the often bulky upper abdominal flap. The Omni-Tract surgical retractor has been used in many surgical procedures. We describe its use in abdominoplasty, taking the weight of the flap from the surgeon, improving exposure and reducing the overall operating time.
