Lift, fill, or tighten
Your lid-cheek junction appears well blended and you don't show many signs of facial descent so it also may be early for a mid face lift.
Ultherapy may be helpful but an exam is needed to assess the laxity of your skin.
What at I think you would clearly benefit from would be a resurfacing of your skin with either a laser or deep peel. Not only will it tighten your skin, but also improve and rejuvinate your complexion to eliminate some of the irregulaties you see.
An in person consultation is important to better define your goals and what is right for you.

More fillers for mid face?
- You do not need and should not have more facial fillers.
- Your 'worse' look appears to be in overhead lighting, possibly fluorescent. People always look poor with this kind of lighting.
- If your skin is loose, consider no-down-time treatments such as ND Yag laser, Ultherapy, etc.
- If your skin quality is poor, consider topical prescription strength skin creams that include tretinoin.
- And to deal with poor lighting, see a make-up consultant as to how to lighten the areas where shadows form. Best wishes.

I would suggest that you have consultation with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns and options with that surgeon in person.
