Fronto-supraorbital Advancement Surgery ??

The surgery you describe, which involves advancement of the supraorbital ridge is a very involved surgery, requires a maxillofacial surgeon. It does not move the eyeballs. I do not believe anybody would do it for cosmetic reasons. There are other procedures like fat graft, dermis fat graft, acellular matrix graft that can be used.
