In brief: Well

Well its hard to give advice on this without seeing the problem but i can tellyou that what you are describing is not fixed by fillers or implants.

Implants or cheek injections can be used to improve balance in the midface but a cheek lift is more appropriate to increase cheek definition and projection in some individuals.
An experienced surgeon will discuss the multiple alternatives after an examining you during consultation.
