Ingrown/Embedded Lip Ring Removal?

My lip was pierced a few months ago and on the inside of my lip skin has grown over the flat disk, I was wondering if you could tell me how you would get it out and so on? I'm really worried about it. Please and thank you.

This problem can be resolved in the office under local anesthesia.  The process will take about 30 minutes.  Care will be taken to minimize any damage to surrounding structures.  Feel comfortable that you will have minimal issues.
