I have a scar that is a straight line directly under my nose, horizontal and about an inch long. I am considering an upper lip lift. I noticed in the online photos that the area the surgeons cut out is the same area where my scar is at. I am hoping that by having an upper lip lift that the scar can be completely cut out and removed as well, and then the surgery scar will heal really nice and I'll have a nice upper lip and no more scar. Would this be the case?
