Tummy tuck skin adhesion? (Photo)

Contour irregularities after tummy tuck
can be addressed with scar release and fat grafting... but the scar release requires a long and large pickle-fork cannula and you must have fat somewhere that can be harvested and prepped to give you the best chance as success. An exam is needed of course so your anatomy and scars can be evaluated.

Although an examination is necessary to determine the exact cause of divot/tethering, it might be possible to fill in your divot with fat graft transfer. A consultation is necessary to provide you a definitive recommendation.

This is an interesting problem. Of course there is the option to reopen the entire incision and release the adhesion that way. There is also another option which is less invasive called a surgiwire, which may work as well. Please discuss with your surgeon.
Hope this helps.
