Long indentation in thigh, no pain. Is it a muscle tear?

Hi, I have recently noticed a long indentation in the top of my right thigh, it isn t painful, but I m curious to know what would cause this. I have recently started practising basic yoga asana s, I don t think I m doing anything strenuous enough to tear a muscle and would expect to feel pain if this was the case. I m only 32, not over weight and in reasonably good health. I would really appreciate an expert opinion, before bothering my busy doctor. Much appreciated.

Thanks for writing to us

Nothing to worry about (unless there is pain).
One possibility is damage to the fatty layer. Do you recall a while back ever bumping your thigh, or having a bruise in that area for any reason?
you need to meet with a plastic surgeon so he or she can examine you and feel the dent his or herself. If this depression is an area of little or no subcutaneous fat, fat grafting might be an option.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
