Yes, a pre-maxillary implant will project the upper lip, but whether or not it is indicated for the type of lip projection you desire is impossible to conjecture without a photograph or two (front and side views most important).

Premaxillary implants can project your lips but other options could also help achieve even better results

The premaxillary implants will give you more lip projection by providing a bigger base. You might need other procedures to help you improve the lip injections. Vy advancements, fat injections, permalip augmentation, fillers, tissue implants can all be options for you to achieve more lip projection.
