Can Fat Be Put Back into an Area on the Outer Thigh?

I had translucent liposuction 2 years ago. I noticed that my thigh appears concave only on my left leg, it appears like too much fat was taken out...it is not noticeable while standing, but very visible when sitting.

Liposuction complications and deformities are very difficult to correct. They need an expert.

The depresion can be corrected with fat graft fat redistribution and occaisionaly lifts.
