i like Voluma for this, implants are more permanent, but nothing about aging is permanent your face continue to change and I love the freedom of putting it exactly where it is needed.

Fillers versus cheek implants for cheek augmentation
Cheek implants are composed of Silastic, are inserted through an Intra-oral approach under a brief general anesthetic. They provide a permanent solution to augmenting the cheeks. Cheek implants are manufactured in a variety of sizes and shapes which is best determined at the time of the consultation.

Fillers vs Implants? Replace like with like
Volume loss is a natural consequence of aging and we lose volume in predictable locations. This is primarily (although not 100%) due to loss of soft tissue volume. Therefore I find the most natural looking rejuvenation results when I use something soft to replace soft tissue volume lost to age. In your case, that will be something like Voluma, Sculptra, or fat transfer. There are pros and cons for each one of those choices which you'll need to discuss with your surgeon.
I don't have any pictures of you, but at your age you should take care to avoid over correction. For most women, I would not recommend filling up to a volume level present as a teen. Generally speaking, there is a sculpted look to a mature female face which is beautiful and appropriate. Too much cheek volume (i.e. teen age volume) can give a baby-faced look and/or risk having a "done" appearance.
