Scars can be improved with massage, topical treatments, steroid or filler injections, laser treatments or surgical scar revision. Without photos and details it is impossible to say which is the best option for you and your specific injury. Please seek an in office consultation with a board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon or Plastic Surgeon.

Lip scars are dynamic and often depressed or thickened.  I recommend surgical excision and layered closure for many lip scars.
