    Scar tissue in upper lip

    Hi,

    i'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this query, apologies if not.

    Basically I had scar tissue on the left side of my upper lip. It came to be there after I got beaten up and it didnt heal fully. Basically it made one side of my lip larger than the other, however not by any huge amount. This was a few years ago. Today the scar tissue is still there however it has reduced in size as far as I can tell, by maybe half. However the size of my lip on this side has remained the same. To me it just appears as though there is soft fleshy tissue where the scar tissue was.

    The problems are both psychological and physical to an extent. My upper lip is uneven because of it which I am self conscious of, but also the left side of my lip tends to rub against my tooth, causing some discomfort.

    I'm not overly keen on surgery as there are no guarantee's of the success, however are there any lip shaping exercises that I could do to reduce the girth of the left side of my lip? Maybe to tone my lips.

    Also what would surgery entail for such an issue?

    Thanks in advance.

    hiya, you cant really get rid of scar tissue as far as i know, i had scar tissue in my bottom lip form a boched silicone lip injection, i had to have it "cut out"...
    there was scar tissue, i researched many doctors and was scared, i finally decided to get it done and i am sooooo happy now...
    the doctor is dr. kisner in huntington, Long Island.
    good luck and let me know if you have questions!
