Fatty Deposit In My Thigh. Can Plastic Surgery Help the Numbness?

A few years ago I fell and hurt my thigh quite badly with swelling and bruising. I now have a fatty deposit confirmed by MRI. This is causing numbness up my leg and into my groin. Can plastic surgery help this?

Numbness on thigh and trauma


Sounds like an unusual outcome.  Trauma can cause a hematoma which can leave a pseudobursa and fluid filled cavity.  I have not heard of exactly what has happened to you, but an exam would help.
