You are pot committed for sure, so you should make a 3bet jam and not just a small 3bet. In fact, when you get dealt QQ with 16 BB, i don't think you are ever folding against one opponent...even a UTG raiser...unless you have good history and he's so tight it's AA, KK, and AK only.
it's probably a jam, beanstalk makes a good point. M of 8 without antes = 12bb, M of 8 with antes = ~20bb. without antes, it's an easy jam because you never 3bet fold a weak hand. with antes, it depends on positions and your image; if you have an image where someone might think you 3bet fold, then 3bet small. if you don't, then jam. if you think he's opening light, or if he's opening late position, you can also 3bet small, to encourage a light 4bet jam from him.
also tenbob - villain M might not matter "all that much" but it does matter. villain's M and the M of everyone left to act after villain should be taken into account as it will dramatically affect villain's opening range.
