Can lip reduction change the way you smile?

I would like to get very minimal reduction on both upper and lower lips. What I am worried about is whether my smile will change a lot because of this procedure. Like will the upper lip reduction make my gums show when i smile showing my teeth? Kind of like a horse.. What i'm saying is will i look like a horse after lip reduction surgery?

Your questions should be directed to a plastic surgeon, as a dermatologist we do not perform lip reductions and do not address this issue.
