What options are there for refilling tissue into a depression?

Q:

When a lesion on my left leg was removed the surgeon also removed a lot of tissue around it. Leaving a sinking depression. What options are there to fill the sinking depression?

A:

Depressed scar can improve some with time. If after 3-6 months there is no improvement, will consider fat transfer with or without laser.
