What is Incision & Drainage?
Incision and drainage treatments are minimally invasive surgical procedures that aim to drain a buildup of fluid under the skin that may be causing harm or discomfort for the patient. Dr. Siddiqui and her expert medical team may recommend incision and drainage treatments to patients who are suffering from cysts or an abscess caused by infection. These treatments are extremely effective, but may not be a long-term solution for some patients. To learn more about incision and drainage for your skin condition, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Siddiqui at your earliest convenience.

What Can I Expect During My Incision & Drainage?
Your incision and drainage will be performed by Dr. Faryal Siddiqui and our team of medical professionals in our beautiful office. Before your exam begins, Dr. Siddiqui may apply a topical or local anesthetic to your treatment area. This is to ensure you remain comfortable throughout your treatment. Once numb, a small incision will carefully be made in your treatment area. Through this incision, the fluid building up under the skin’s surface will be drained and the wound will be treated with a sterile solution. The open wound will be dressed in gauze before you leave.
What Can I Expect After My Incision & Drainage?
Following your incision and drainage treatment, Dr. Siddiqui may provide you with post-treatment care instructions. Excess drainage for one to two days following your procedure is normal and to be expected. We encourage patients to change their wound dressings often to prevent further infection. Patients may be asked to follow up with Dr. Siddiqui within a week or two of treatment.
How Much Does Incision & Drainage Cost?
The cost of your incision and drainage will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic accepts coverage from most insurance plans. To get a more accurate estimate of your treatment cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation.
