Bumps on Face After Lip Revision Surgery? (photo)

I recently had lip revision Surgery about three weeks ago..since the surgery my face has been broken out around the area where the surgery was done. I had scar revision to repair my lip where i was electrocuted as a baby. My lip is also still somewhat swollen and looks uneven and I'm just curious as to when i will get my smile back. Is this normal? Where are these bumps coming from?.When will my lip become even again? Could my nerves be damaged? Please help

Bumps on Face After Lip Revision Surgery?

bumps are either early acne, or milia. Each can be treated by local care. The swelling and scarring at 3 weeks is to be expected. Allow 3 months for 80% healing. Best to discuss with the surgeon who did the operation.
