A standard sized, sterile handheld Skin Hook, used for holding back the edges of skin during the dissection of lesions and intranasal procedures.
Used to grasp, hold, and position delicate soft tissues during the suturing phase of a surgical procedure.
Skin hooks are used in many different medical procedures that require the gentle maneuvering of skin and soft tissue, including corrective surgical procedures on the eyes, suturing facial skin, and stitching the delicate individual layers of the skin.
The prongs of the skin hook instrument can be customized according to the procedure performed. Some types of this surgical equipment have hooks that are very sharp and thin.
Other skin hooks feature prongs that are thick and have a dull tip. The skin hooks may have a single prong or double prongs.
Prongs are often classified as extra fine, standard, or delicate; the classification enables the surgical preparation team to select the most appropriate instrument for the procedure.
