What's the Best Option for my Face to Look Younger?

Removing a lot of facial fat will acutally make you look older sooner. Conservative buccal fat pad removal is OK, but being too aggressive can hollow you out.

Making the face look younger.
The fat in your face makes you look younger and removing it(as with aging) makes it kook older. NO SURGERY! See a good esthetician.
Options to make Face Look Younger
Based on your photograph, the only recommendation I would have is seeking out good skin care. Given your youthful appearance, I would place top priority on avoidance of things that accelerate the aging process: smoking and excessive sun exposure. See your local aesthetician, evaluate the skin care products (including sun screen) you are using, and consider facials or a series of microdermabrasions.
