Will getting braces make my very thin lips stick out?

In brief: Temporarily

The thickness of the braces will cause the lips to become slightly fuller. If you are asking if braces can alter your lip thickness permanently, that's a question to pose to your orthodontic specialist as sometimes treatment may change the angle of front teeth and lip position to some small extent.
