I have a thick scar in my bottom lip. Is there anyway to remove it without surgery? (photo)

The scar happened when I was a kid. I feel embarrassed when people looking at my lips. I have consulted with a dermatologist, he told me to go with surgery. He also suggested to have 2 surgeries otherwise the lip may seem uneven. Also he didn't promise me a favourable outcome. Shall I go with the surgery? Please suggest. Thanks

Plato's scar serum or scar excision for a lip scar

Scar revision may be one option. Some lip scars have excess collagen scar and may benefit from twice daily massage using Plato's Scar Serum.
