Summary

The provider harvests a flap of omentum, as a free graft, detaching it from the vessels in its abdominal location. He uses it to fill defects during reconstructive surgery in other locations in the body, such as the breast, head and neck, or extremities, using an operative microscope and very small instruments to reconnect the vessels at the new location.
