I got a 2 cm gash on the inside of my upper lip from a biking accident 1 ½ month ago. It wasn't found necessary to sew. A week later the lip had "hard lumps" (scar tissue?), which my dentist removed with a laser two weeks after the accident. Now the hard lumps are gone, but there is still a visible lump/asymmetry when I talk/smile. When can I expect to see the final result? For how long time will my lip keep improve? The laser surgery was done a month ago now. I am 22 years old.
