A line- depression area after filler. What can I do to make it go?

I had a filler injected (restylane) on my lips in march 2012 and it left a bump on the left side of my upper lip for a few weeks. I contacted the doctor but he never replied to my messages or emails ( i still have the email saved). Later on the bump caused a depression area and has now (after 2 years)
ended up being a permanent line that cuts my left lip vertically. It is very fine but it causes a shadow and it can be seen from very close and felt when touching. What can be done to remove this unnatural-asymmetric line? Is there a chance for me to return to the original lips shape I had before the filler?
