Forehead Reshaping and Hair Line Lowering?
I agree with Dr. Kabaker. Even though you could have a hairline reshaping procedure that doesn't mean that you should. If you have had some hairloss in the temples you could try Rogaine to counteract that. Otherwise, you have long hair which can be styled to cover any temporal recession. You will probably find a surgeon willing to perform this surgery for you but I would strongly recommend against it. I hope this information is helpful.

Lower hairline to reduce forehead
I would strongly discourage you from having surgery to change your hairline or forehead based on the pictures and your apparent youth. You have a full natural hairline which styles readily to to minimize the forehead exposure and appearance.
