Does this occur only when the surgeon doesn't properly provide blood supply to the area? Or can that happen even with a perfect surgery? I need to know if he messed me up and I shouldn't trust him with my face again. If it doesn't go away and has to be excised, can a small incision be made to do that? Or would it be a big incision needing to go 20-20% beyond the whole diameter of the lump? And does fat loss ever regenerate?
I have Fat Necrosis from an excision done on my face?

A depression in the skin can be caused by a number of different factors, including fat necrosis and dog ear formation. In most cases, the area can be improved with scar revision. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles
