Are your lips too thin or is the red part of the lips too narrow? It is possible to enhance the lips.
If an injection is not effective because the red of the lips is too inverted then it can be enlarged by turning the red of the lips from the inside of the lips outwards.

You have to wait a few months before the scars from a Lip-Plasty fully mature. You may experience a little discomfort when moving the lips for a few weeks. A temporary loss of sensation in the lips is possible. Sometimes the scar tissue can remain lumpy and sensitive for a longer period.
The plastic surgeon usually makes a small butterfly-shaped incision. The scar is hidden in the nostrils. Lifting the upper lip gives a more youthful appearance. The procedure is performed with a local anaesthetic and takes about half an hour.
