Scars on upper lip, depressed due to underlying scar tissue. Dermal skin grafting help?

i have to deep scars on my upper lip.....they are both straight......the scars on the surface of the skin are very thin......they are depressed because of the underlying scar tissue.....would subscission surgery help this?
i have reAD THAT A DERMAL SKIN GRAFT MIGHT ALSO BE USED UNDER THE SKIN SURFACE TO HELP RAISE THE DPRESSED AREA....IS THIS POSSIBLE? the scars are the result of a bi-lateral cleft lip.....the repair was very good but did leave the noticable scars running from the base of the nose down too the pink part of the lip.....
