Thank you for your question and for sharing your photograph.  It appears that any repair that was done led to an irregularity of your red lip line and only a revision of the scar will allow for a closer reapproximation of the tissues to try and restore your previous appearance.  See an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in consultation, they can offer the best treatment option.
