I think I have answered your question before. its best to be evaluated in person for this problem. the scarred tissue has to be felt and only then the treatment plan can be better devised

You lip scar/irregularity can actually be treated similarly than other areas in your face. It is hard to tell the type of scar based on your images, but this may be able to be improved with an office procedure. Consider seeing an expert to provide you with additional information after examining your lip.
