Based on the pictures, you could just excise, cut out, the bumps as suggested by the other doctors as well. This might not make it more smooth though. I my opinion, I think your upper lip is too large and could benefit from reducing.  You can then add filler to it to also help the bumps. Fat injections if the lips could also soften the lumps.

I think direct elliptical incisions are your best option as well. They will leave fine scars, but would likely leave a flatter appearance with a smoother contour that would be less eye-catching.

Lip Bumps/Scars Could Benefit By Vertical Vermilion Excisions

+1

The improvement in your upper lip irregularities may be obtained by selective vermilions excisions. Given where these bumps are located and the natural vertically-oriented lines of the upper lip, the bumps (excess vermilion/mucosa) could be ellipitically excised. In looking at your pictures, there appear to be at 5 or 6 areas where this could be done. This will make the bumps flatter and help create a more even upper lip vermilion.
