I have an old basketball injury to my lip that causes my smile line to become uneven. What can I have done? Is it scar tissue?

This is scar tissue along the lower edge of the upper lip vermilion. That can simply be resolved by a linear excision of the overhanging vermilion lip tissue, placing the incision on the underside/inside of the upper lip.
