As far as I know I don't have them, but I did find this study conclusion that mentions them. The way it's written, it sounds like the clips are placed at the wrap site with the sutures, so wouldn't be in the abdomen:
I would not assume anything. Have you called your surgeon to confirm that the clips should be there? That's what I would recommend.
Be sure to let us know what you find out.
