So sorry you are experiencing this problem, but it sounds like you just had the surgery. It is quite normal for swelling and concomitant scar irregularities to last at least 4-6 weeks after surgery. Also scars need time to mature before final result can be appreciated, and that takes 9-12 months. Follow up with your surgeon. Check out the link below to an article about lip reduction surgery and healing as it may be helpful. Good luck!
