Incision and drainage

Drainage is the removal of fluid or purulent material from a woundsore or cavity.

Skin grafting and flap 
A skin graft is a patch of skin that is surgically removed from one area of the body and transplanted to another area.

A skin flap consists of skin and subcutaneous tissue that survives based on its own blood supply. A skin flap is used for wound coverage when inadequate vascularity of the wound bed prevents skin graft survival.

Surgical Excision 
Surgical Excision refers to cutting out of a skin lesion (growth). Some of the commonest lesions which are excised are moles, cysts and xanthelasma (cholesterol deposits).

Excision involves local anaesthesia and stitching of the skin. The stitches are removed after 1-2 weeks. The resulting line scar will heal and improve with time.

Electrosurgery is the use of an electric device for removing small superficial skin growths, such as viral warts, seborrhoeic keratoses (age growths) and skin tags. This requires cream or local anaesthesia. Crusts will be formed on the surface of the skin which will peel off sponstaneously.
