Lip scar revision from a dog bite
I would suggest a lip scar revision followed by Hidef fractional lasers to help reduce scarring in the area.
You have a depressed scar since the laceration was not repaired in layers. You should seek a plastic surgeon for scar revision. You depressed scar will be discarded & the layers of normal skin / lip mucosa repaired meticulously, without depression.
