How can I flatten out the pump(lump) on my lip without going through surgery again? (Photo)

I am wondering if there are home remedies I can use to lower or flatten the pump on my upper lip? It's been 3days since I remove the stitches but I feel like the pump will stay on my lip forever

Treating a scar on the lip

Some of the swelling will go down. I would use Plato's Scar Serum twice daily and allow the swelling to subside.

Lump on Lip--See an Expert--

This can be treated with surgery or lasers. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon with experience in surgery on this area. A formal consultation is needed. Best, Dr. Emer.
