4 years post op with secondary staph infection surgery as well. Help to push in on the area with a visible indentation. (photo)

Other than scar revision surgery are there any other options? What does scar revision consist of? I've had injections in the past.

Fat grafting for indentation scar

This area may benefit from surgical scar revision or fat grafting to help even out the contour of the scar.

I suggest consulting with a board certified cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon for an in person evaluation. Indentation from scarring can be improved with scar revision or fat transfer, but a formal consultation is needed to determine cost. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
