Can Bad Scarring After V-Y Lip Augmentation Be Fixed?
I had the V-Y lip augmentation in 2003.This has turned out to be the biggest mistake of my life! 7yrs later & I'm still dealing with tightness and thick scar tissue inside my lip. My lip no longer turns up when I smile and is very uncomfortable. It looks abnormally flat with certain expressions & laughter. I hate it!! Is there anything that can be done to make it not so tight & give my lip a more natural movement? I feel self conscious every day! The original surgeon refused to help :-(
The scar tissue in your lips might soften with a triamcinolone injection.
