Procedures to help with scar on upper lip
The scar on your upper lip is still healing and most likely the bump will go down with more time. It can take several months and sometimes a year for the complete healing to occur. If you feel the edges of the lip are misaligned, this most likely will not change with more time. It is possible that a scar revision could improve the appearance of your scar. It might be worth waiting another month to see how it looks before having such a procedure performed however.
