How long does it take for a subareolar breast abscess surgery? Can you go home on the same day? What are the compilations after surgery? Thank you?

In brief: Breast abscess ?

If the diagnosis is a confirmed abscess, simple local anesthesia to "numb" the skin incision, and placing a drain to prevent new collection of abscess fluid (pus) takes only a few minutes.
It is an outpatient procedure, with few complications unless the drain falls out prior to healing, and a recurrent abscess forms.
