Depending upon whether or not this is scar tissue or distortion of your red lip due to the trauma it might be possible to perform an injection treatment to reduce scar tissue. My suspicion is you will likely require excision of that excess scar tissue to create a smoother border of your lip. The cost could range from $500-2500. I hope this information is helpful for you.
