Is my bottom lip too big? And does it stick out too much? (photo)

You have options
Personally, I don't feel that your bottom lip protrudes 'too much'. As others have mentioned, there's an infinite number of lip shapes and volumes, and everyone's ideal look is different. Many people are looking to fill their bottom lip but you are lucky that it's already full. I would suggest a small amount of filler in the top lip to bring it more in line with the bottom, when looking at your profile. This treatment can be done in a way that doesn't make a dramatic change to your top lip shape, but just alters the appearance from the side view. As injectable lip filler is not permanent, you can see how you feel with your upper lip enhanced, and go from there.
I wish you luck in finding a look that you like!

Naturally, lip enhancement can be as personal as most other aesthetic treatments. However, there are some guidelines that an experienced provider would follow to give you the best look. In my opinion, if your smile and mouth movements are not natural , then perhaps you might consider less filler next time.The bottom lip should in general be ~ 1/3 larger than the top , in order to avoid a duck-like appearance.A central poutiness with a gradual fill is more natural than a "tube-like" fill , but many providers and patients seem to like this look ( as seen in the media).Love your lips and smile after a lip enhancement treatment--otherwise, return for a correction! The results will last 6-9 months.
