Have you lost a lot of weight recently? If so, then the hollow cheeks reflect the loss of fat from your face. When you lose weight there is no way to predict where the fat will come off first. It may take a while but many times your fat distribution will change and your cheeks may get filled out again. Sometimes, though, the only way to get your cheeks fuller again is to gain weight. A sort of Catch-22 dilemma.
Fat injections are not a good solution at all. First of all, it is temporary since the fat will get re-absorbed by your body within a few months. Also, I have heard of many horror stories of messed up faces due to this procedure. Many who had done the procedure wished they had left well enough alone.
Another question is how old are you? As we age we lose fat from our faces and they get that sunken look. In that case, there is really nothing that can be done.

At 5'7" and 67 kgs, which is roughly 147 pounds, you are in the normal/healthy range. Still, have you lost weight recently? As I said before, if you have lost weight then it may take a bit of time for your body fat distribution to change and fill out your cheeks. If, however, you have not lost weight then there may be nothing you can do except gain some weight and hope that the cheeks will fill out more than other parts of you.
Are the sunken cheeks something new to you or have you always had this face structure?
Even if you cannot do much to change the appearance of your face, don't get too upset by it. There are many who wish they had your problem instead of pudgy, fat cheeks. The cheeks you have give you a more mysterious, sophisticated look, one that many (women) find quite appealing. I would not worry about it at all and just concentrate on getting a great body to go with that look by doing weight training.
