Upper jaw and chin
Yes, but the bite has to justify the upper jaw coming forward or you get an 'overbite/overjet'. The fullness you want to achieve has to balance with the occlusion; and the chin position. The chin can be modified to a natural position but once again, it depends upon the position of the lower incisors which do affect the lower lip contour. Consult a maxillofacial surgeon
