In brief: Lip change

Potentially. Depends what you are having done.
Also, the tissues can be managed to either enhance or control the degree of change.

In brief: Yes

Yes. Since the lips and mouth are supported in part by the teeth, then the appearance in these areas change.
The changes should be positive.
