If you are seeing temporary changes that’s a good sign there is potential for long term improvement in your ROM. Temporary changes can become permanent with consistency and strengthening in the new ROM. Certainly would not opt for further surgery.
The sliding surfaces should be able to be restored over time and that tacked down skin could be a player in your limitations. Allowing the skin to move independently of the muscles and tissues and vice versa is key. Some IASTM works well for this. Do you have a voodoo band or voodoo x band? If not I recommend getting one. Wrapping the area and performing squats and other movements that are restricted can have a big impact on restoring the movement and sliding surfaces. Addressing up down stream of where you see the problem is an important aspect as well.
