Tooth show, and relationship to lips

First I would disagree that your lips are thin.  You appear to be Middle Eastern, so by your standards that may be true.

I don't think that your upper lip is too long, so a lift is not in order here.  I would recommend a trip to the dentist for an evaluation, and maybe a visit to an oral surgeon to study the reltionship of your jaws.
