Can my lip be fixed?

I was tricked by a general surgeon who wanted to remove a small bump on my lip himself. He botched the surgery and stitching leaving me with a deformed lip. The sutures were tied so tight from the side of my lip leaving a hideous lump on the bottom. The lump is soft normal tissue which will not go through any healing process meaning it will never go away and causing me to fall into a state of depression. Does anyone know if this can be corrected? (http://img5.imageshack.us/my.php?image=aftersurgery3.jpg)

I think that filler might give you a easy and suitable result. Alternatively, possibly a small surgical procedure will help. I would go with the filler and i think you'll be happy. (more)
