Ask A Doctor Question:
I was hit in the face with a baseball bat and my top lip was split open I had stiches but It healed with a bubble I need to know if it can be made normal?
Most likely the bubble on the lip is the result of scar in the vermilion (pink portion of the lip) which frequently looks like a raised area. A lip scar revision can be performed to remove the scar and get a smooth vermilion again without a noticeable hump or bubble.

You should see a Board Certified Plastic surgeon for an evaluation of your scar .. It may be beneficial to treat the scar with topical ointment, injection, or you may need a revisional surgery. The qualified surgeon will be able to help you. Good Luck
