need to when scar on lip from stitches will go

I had a serious bike accident some tym ago and my upper lip was stitched, this was around august last year.
My lips have improved greatly since then but it seemed to reach a halt when the hardness and scar it had created refused to go for almost 6 months now. I believe i have been very patient and would please need some help as to how I can get rid of this and when its most likely to go. And I will also like to know if i should leave the scar open or continue to leave it moist by applying lip balm.
Thank you in advance.

Sometimes lips heal with thickened interior scarring that does not soften.  If it persists, you may need a scar revision.  I would advise a consultation with a local plastic surgeon.

Will the scar revision be able to lessen the hardness or minimise the scar?.
I will also like to know if i should leave the scar open or continue to leave it moist by applying lip balm.
And I don't really have any local plastic surgeon where I live. Could you please take a look at it yourself?.
Thanks.
