A:   Hello,
Thank you posting your query on ATD.
I have seen your picture.
You have a slight dent the size of a coin on right calf muscle.
Such picture appears when fat tissue between skin and muscle is depleted locally.
It is not a serious problem.
If you are having a cosmetic concern then fat grafting can be considered.
