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.
