Fillers were made for you!
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be a home run treatment for you. With modern cannula injections, there is little risk of bruising or significant swelling. Plus the treatment is reversible if for some reason you are displeased. I would suggest Belotero in this location, because you have thin skin and run the risk of the tyndall effect (slight bluish hue with many filler injections).
Since you are young and this is a congenital feature you wish to change permanently, it would be appropriate to consider surgical procedures so that you do not have to undergo a lifetime of repeated filler injections. There are options such as tear trough implants, fat transposition procedures, fat transfer, and more.... however I would definitely suggest you start with fillers first so you can evaluate the result, and this will allow you to have a dialogue with your surgeon over time so that the ideal long term plan can become evident. You certainly do not want to make a hasty decision about surgery at this point so early in your life.
Good luck to you!
