Time will tell how things settle. Without knowing exactly what was done during your surgery it is hard to give specific advice. However, after flap repair of upper lip defects, it is not uncommon for the smile and lip movements to look abnormal. This will likely improve significantly over time. You should have a followup scheduled around one week to ensure that you are healing well. At that time, you can pose this question to your reconstructive surgeon and they will be able to give you very specific advice about how things will heal over time.
I hope this information is helpful.
