Lips Looking Thin When Smiling

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Lips naturally look thinner when smiling and it should not be a concern on its own and the more important aspect is the balance between lips and the rest of facial features. However, we always can add a little bit of volume to the lips with filler injection to achieve a fuller look at rest and while smiling. I hope it helps and good luck!
