Lengthening a short forehead
It is not possible to make the forehead longer without raising the eyebrows. With natural aging, the hairline does tend to recede over time so it is best to wait for the normal aging process.
With average scalp laxity, it would be easy to raise your forehead the small amount you desire. The approach could be similar to an endoscopic brow lift without releasing the brows.
