My lips are rather small, my sister has a similar face to myself and has much fuller lips. I am wondering if I am a candidate for lip augmentation? Right now I am 16, is there an age limit to be able to get a lip augmentation? Also, I would prefer to do something natural, I have read about fat injections and I am wondering if results would last at least a year or maybe even permanently? Thank you.

Lip Augmentation and Candidate
You have beautifully proportioned lips and I would not recommend having any filler right now. Some patients want a little more volume like "Kylie Jenner" in which case I might recommend a syringe of Juvederm. Please consult an expert for the best facial injections. Hyaluronic acid gels are temporary and the effects can last up to one years. If you don't like the results you can have them dissolved with Vitrase. Best, Dr. Green

You have lovely and well proportioned lips. It would be best to wait on any treatment. You will always have that option in the future.
Based on what I can see in the photograph, I think you have a very nice shape to your lips and they appear nice and full and well-proportioned. As suggested by other doctors, I would recommend leaving them alone for now. You can always reconsider as you get a little older.

Based solely on your photograph posted, I would leave those pretty lips alone. I would do nothing to them.

Because you are 16, please share this answer with your parents. Aesthetically, according to The Palmer Code your lips score 6 out of a possible perfect 7 points for your lips because your upper lip is a bit thin. At 16, if your parents agree, I would recommend using an Alloderm Lip Implant that's soft, supple and will last about 7 years. I would only augment the upper lip, as your lower lip is aesthetically correct IMHO.
