What can be done to fix dent in my upper lip? (photos)

10 years ago I had a sports accident and lost part of my upper lip. A surgeon was able to pull the two sides together to close the large divot and later removed a bean sized ball of scar tissue. Now I have a noticeable line across my lip when I smile. Is this something a filler could fix?

Lip Augmentation with Fillers or Lip Implant or Fat -- Go Slow, Use Cannulas

I suggest consulting with a facial sculpting expert for an in person evaluation. Fillers can be used to augment the lip and improve scarring.  Lasers or surgery may help.  Best, Dr. Emer
