Four months ago, I tore my upper lip. The emergency doc said, "Lips heal by themselves". My lip did "heal", but there's a thick scar, a ball of scar tissue like a jelly bean.
Also, a large crooked bulge at the bottom of the upper lip, and a noticeable horizontal scar that shows when I smile. It's very painful to the touch. The doctors's have been very discouraging, advising me to wait a year, then that surgery would make things WORSE.
How can lips "heal by themselves", yet be so sensitive that you can't do surgery because "all surgery will leave scars"? Cannot find a surgeon to help me.
