Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Using tabs, systematically remove backing to expose the silicone gel. Once backing is removed, apply bottom (smaller) edge of the ABBy™ Extended Wear Panniculus Retractor above the incision and smooth down on dermis. When the bottom portion of the device is affixed securely, hold the top edges and stretch gently toward the head to retract the panniculus away from the incision until the incision is fully exposed. Apply the device to the dermis and smooth the entire device down on the skin.
Peeling back slowly, remove ABBy™ Extended Wear Panniculus Retractor slowly while supporting the skin with the other hand. If soiled, it should be removed and washed with mild soap.
