Incision and Drainage in Lewisville, TX

What is Incision & Drainage?

Incision and drainage treatments are safe and effective procedures that are done to relieve fluid buildup in an abscess or swollen and infected patch of skin. This simple treatment involves a small incision being made into the abscess, allowing the fluid to drain and the healing process to resume. Your medical professional may suggest you undergo an incision and drainage treatment for your abscess or other conditions like lymphedema.

What are the Benefits of Incision & Drainage Treatments?

There are many benefits of receiving incision and drainage treatments with the medical professionals at StrideWoundCare, including:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Aids in healing open wounds and abscesses

What Can I Expect During My Incision & Drainage Treatments?

Your incision and drainage treatment will be performed by one of StrideWoundCare's expert medical professionals. Your medical team member will begin your treatment by applying a topical or local anesthetic to your treatment area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your incision and drainage treatment. Once numb, a small incision will be made over the abscess, through which the built-up fluid will be able to drain. Once the abscess is clear, the area will be flushed out with a sterile saline solution. The entire treatment process typically takes less than an hour to complete.

What Can I Expect After My Incision & Drainage Treatments?

Because incision and drainage are minimally invasive, there is no formal downtime associated with your treatment session. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities immediately following their treatment sessions. Your incision site will be covered with bandaging and will likely heal as anticipated.
