But its just a simple matter of practice.
A football player or a sprinter get tired after prolonged physical exertion, and your poor lips are no different. But with practice, especially endurance practice, playing many songs consecutively and conditioning such as prolonged circular breathing, have been a serious aid when trying to strengthen your mouth for longer and more powerfull playing sessions
Practising altissimo notes
And endurance conditioning should do the trick

The left thumb rest is also used as a spot to apply pressure with the left thumb to help keep top of the mouthpiece firm against your top front teeth. Your lower lip acts as a cushion between your bottom front teeth and the reed. The corners of your mouth (sides where top and bottom lips connect) should pull back toward your ears like smiling. Then think of your lips around the mouthpiece like a drawstring closing a pouch. Lots of muscles to exercise and develop.

Full range of the horn, not just one or two octaves.

The mouth is just like a muscle. The more you use it as part of the embrochure, the more the muscle becomes used to it. So it's just a normal part for beginners. Don't worry about it too much, you will get better
