I've been really self conscious lately about facial proportion, feminization, and a bit concerned with aging as well (Photo)

The idealized photo you have included seems to create a more rounded face and blunts some your natural structural beauty. I do think using fillers and toxins as a temporary option to see the potential changes of surgery is a reasonable idea and at 27 I would strongly suggest you not have a mid face lift. You have beautiful features and I would recommend a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon so they can discuss both non-surgical and surgical options in depth with you including the risks and benefits.
Best of Luck
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation
Based on your age and photos, your best options are going to be non-surgical. You are still young. It is important that you be assessed in person by a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. It is really the only way to recommend exactly which fillers to achieve your goal of re-belancing your face.
Facial Aging and Lasers like Fraxel/Clear + Brilliant, RF like VIVA, Peels, Fillers, Skin Care, Face Lift, Fat Injections

I think you are an excellent candidate for fillers. For patients of mine with similar patterns of volume loss, I like to use a small amount of a thicker, more volumizing hyaluronic acid filler such as Voluma in the cheeks. This tends to soften some of the lines lower on your face. You'd also likely benefit from some Juvederm or Restylane injected directly into your nasolabial folds (i.e., "smile lines"). However, I'd caution against the temptation to have only these lines filled, as you are noticing them mainly as a result of global volume loss, which happens to all of us as we age. I also think you'd benefit from regular botox to your masseters to help re-shape your jawline. To maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome, I recommend that you only get treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Hope this opinion is helpful to you. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
