Overbite and large lips

Thank you for your question about your lips.

Based only on the photo and your known over-bite, the best first step would be correction of your over bite, either with braces or - often better - with surgery.
I suggest you see both an orthodontist and a cranio-facial surgeon before having anything done directly to the lips.

Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
