Basic Plastic Surgery Skills Training Program on Inanimate Bench Models during Medical Graduation

Figure 4

Inanimate bench models simulating flaps. (a, b, and c) Ox tongue bench model simulating a monopedicle advancement flap. (d, e, and f) Chicken-skin bench model simulating a Z-plasty. Note that students can easily see the advancement and transposition of surgical flaps, which often is hard to understand with the use of two-dimensional models. For example, it is simpler to explain that the center line of the Z-plasty should be placed along the scar, since it is this component that will be lengthened.
