Is Forehead Width Reduction Possible Without Altering the Hairline?

I read somewhere that minor skull burring is possible, can this also be applied to the forehead bone from the sides?

Yes, it is possible usually to take down portions of the frontal bone, through several small incisions.

The question is about reducing the width of the forehead. I think the only way to do this is with hair transplants to the temple hair region.

Yes it would be possible to burr down frontal bone prominences to some degree. I have done this in several patients.  However, they also needed hair line lowering with it. In your case, it may be different. See picture below.
