Making a long face appear shorter

A long face can appear shorter by lowering the hairline such as through a brow lift or hair transplants.  If the jaw line is too long and protruding, jaw surgery to set the jaw back higher and shorten the face may be an option.  Cheek implants are another way to make the face appear wider, and create the illusion of a shorter face.
