Skin Tissue Thickened After Lip Reduction Surgery?

I had lower lip reduction 6 month ago. Doctor made a cut in the middle of my lip and spot between lip and chin, and cut out some of tissue inside it and when I touch this spot it feels hard, like I have bump inside. Also,I developed keloid. I done 2 steroid injections. It helped, but still keloid is very visible and I feel self conscious about it. And it borhers me that scar hurts when my face gets hot. I want to know what can help treat keloid completly and how to soften the tissue. Thanks.

Keloid or scar tissue within your lip reduction scar can be effectively removed or reduced.  I use surgical and non surgical options for lip scar reduction.
