Is it it possible to fix a fat lip with plastic surgery?
You would need a consultation with a plastic surgeon once everything has healed completely in order to determine your best options. I would wait at least a few months.

Yes it is possible. Scars and swelling settle over 6 months to a year. I would suggest waiting until then for any possible surgical procedure. See a plastic surgeon who is a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) for a consultation and advice about massage of the area, sun screen and the options of treatment.
