The upper vermillion (pink lip) should be about 60% of the height of the lower lip vermillion. The aesthetic ideal proportions and dimensions of the lips have been published in scientific articles and need to be taken into account for aesthetic lip procedures. It is important for the upper lip to not be elongated, which will cause the teeth to be obscured. Any volume placed in your upper lip should still leave 2-4 mm of your upper incisors showing. Your lips present some challenges. Select only a skilled and trained aesthetic Dermatologist or PlasticSurgeon for your procedure.

Thanks for posting your question and for your photo's. You do have a lovely cupids bow. There are a few options, non surgical and surgical.
Lip fillers provide an effective temporary solution to help volumize your lips. Dermal filler injections add volume to the lips and typically last around 4-6 months. In some cases duration of the effects can be a bit shorter or longer. It would be best to start with these, to get a feel for how big you want to go. Then you may want to go on to a more permanent solution.
Permalip™ are revolutionary lip implants that are designed to look and feel natural, yet enhance your lip volume to your desired size. It does not deflate, degrade or rupture over time. Although it’s permanent, it is designed for the ease of placement if a patient wishes to achieve a larger or smaller enhancement or even return to the lips original appearance. It does not limit lip movement and provides a natural look.
Have a good think and do your research.
