You are having deformed lip following insect bite trauma.

You are having scar and that look ugly as you said.

You passed many years without treatment.

Now you became concious.

If you are really embarassed,then you consult plastic surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist.

Discuss with him about your deformity, if he assures to make your lip cosmetically good by surgery or laser therapy, the you decide for treatment..ok

Otherwise, you accept the condition without worry.

I hope you got my answer.
