I had stitches years ago on my upper lip, and the suture (1/2cm) has left a raised bump looking scar.

I got attacked by a dog at age 11, and I had a pea-sized hole in my upper lip that was sutured together. I'm 21 years old. The suture left a scar and a raised shape that is smooth to the touch but looks uneven and ballish. I never naturally had symmetric lips or face to begin with anyways. What type of filler or surgery is best to correct and fill and also augment my lips/chin face area?

Scar revision on the lip

Apply Plato's Scar Serum followed by surgical scar revision to decrease the lumpiness and scar tissue in the area.
