Sometimes the scars can be just excised and removed. You can try steroid injections as well. Silicone sheets and gels might help reduce the swelling.  Also to soften the scars perhaps the best options is fat injections. Below is a video on grafting tissue into the lips. We have more videos to learn more about your options.
