Lip reconstruction

Thank you for your photo. A thorough in-office examination will be necessary to evaluate the components of your lip and the amount of scarring. It may be possible to simply revise the area of scar to reduce the appearance of the scar or to reconstruct the area using your existing lip tissue however this requires a detailed examination. Hope this helps!Johnson C.

Lip reconstruction for extensive scarring?

to properly evaluate your situation I would need to see this in person. There is no way a surgeon can give you an informed opinion without an examination to see what remains of normal tissue etc.
