Is There Anything I Can Do to Make my Lips Thinner?

I'd really like to make my lips thinner, they're too big for me. I think they got bigger after I gained weight. Is that possible? Either way, Id like my lips, upper lip especially, a bit thinner. So if there's anything I can do.. medically, surgically, or naturally .. please tell me! Thanks! (:

Lip Reduction for Thinner Lips


Lip can be reduced in size by removing tissue from the inside of the lip to reduce the amount of visible vermilion tissue. This is a classic lip reduction technique that can reduce the size of the lips 25% to 33% in most cases.
