I was at a bar one night and one thing lead to another and I got into a fight with someone, and ended up splitting open my bottom lip and needed 5 stitches. It has been 3 months now and I have a very uneven bottom lip, it is very noticeable, and I want to know what can be done to resolve it. The lump is like a hard ball and I just want my soft lips back. It just really gets me down and I am so self conscious about it. I have provided before & after pictures. Thank you Mike
I Busted my Bottom Lip Open and then I Had It Stitched Back Together but There is a Fat Lump Now, What Can I Do to Get if Fixed?

Scar revision of the lips and face
I would begin treatment early for this lip scar. In my opinion, it will need specific excision and layered closure to coapt tissue planes.
