Can a lower expansion appliance change the size of my chin and length of lips.

In brief: Not really

Lower expansion appliances work by tipping out the lower teeth.
They do not actually expand the bone the way upper expansion appliances do. By tipping out your lower front teeth it will change the support your lips get from your teeth and may make your lips look longer by giving them more support. By 'filling out" this part of your face it may make your chin look smaller.
