Hi Kim.  Not sure what your budget is, but we would most suggest a dermal filler like Perlane or Radiesse in your situation.  You would need at least 2 cc's and more likely 3, which would range between $1000 - $1200 at our practice.  Not sure if this is affordable for you, but the issue is volume loss and this is the easiest and cheapest way we would have to address that.

There is filler that can be filled into your nasal labial fold to help. You can do restalyne, juverderm and even sculptra. It all depends to what doctor you go to every doctor has their own idea.
