It is difficult to exactly assess the situation based on the photograph that you have submitted.  From your description it sounds as if you have a tear trough deformity at an early age.  You may benefit from a trial of some filler such as Restylane to see if filling the groove improves your appearance.  If the Restylane works you might consider a more permanent transfer such as fat transfer.
