Uneven hairline hair transplants and hairline lowering
Uneven hairlines are typically best addressed with hair transplants. Certainly, some degree of unevenness is ok and actually desirable, but large defects can be corrected with hair transplants. You would of course need a more thorough history and physical exam of the area, prior to having a surgeon offer you a procedure.
Hairline lowering procedure
I believe that you need a careful examination to make sure that you do not have some cause of the hairline problems, even a biopsy. There are diseases such as Frontal Fibrosing Alpecia that cause this problem. You would not want to get a and then have it fail.
Defect in hairline
If you wish to have a more normal looking hairline by having the center filled in, a relatively small session of densly packed hair transplants would be the best way to go. Lowering the entire hairline by more grafts or scalp advancement would be much more costly.

It is best you are seen by a hair transplant specialist for a consultation and complete review of your history. It looks like you have a retracted area in your hairline that may be due to a patterned baldness or other reasons. A hair transplant will be a great option for you. It cannot only bring your hairline lower, it will fill in the gap and restore any other areas that may have the risk of future hair loss.
