Smaller lesions may respond to conservative treatments like rest, compression, and drainage. Serial aspirations—repeated removal of fluid—might be attempted for gradual reduction.
Surgical Treatment: Precision and Expertise
Surgical intervention is often necessary to effectively treat Morel-Lavallée lesions. The initial step in surgical treatment involves debriding any devitalized tissue and thoroughly draining the collection of fluid and debris. This helps reduce the risk of infection and promote healing. After debridement, closed suction drains may be placed to continue draining any residual fluid and to prevent re-accumulation. Depending on the size and complexity of the lesion, primary closure of the wound may be possible. However, in cases where significant tissue loss or skin necrosis has occurred, flap reconstruction may be required to restore the area to its optimal function and aesthetics.
