I will suggest this as 'cellulitis' of most of the areas incised.
TheCPT code merits to this scenerio is 10061..
10061 I & D of abscess (cutaneous or subcutaneous ) with modifier -22 for extensive/extension work on to the flanks incision and drainage (no fliud, though), supported with the ICD-diagnosis 682.2 - Other cellulitis and abscess Trunk ( flank).
Modifier for laterality also include- ie, LT to the CPT code
Andfor Leg - ICD-9 CM - 682.6 Cellulitis and abscess of leg.
So CPT: 10061- 22 LT,
ICD-9: 682.6, 682.2
