Forehead reduction can do the following;
-reduce the excess skin of the forehead
-elevate the eyebrows
-improve the appearance of the upper eyelid skin
-create a more attractive proportions of the face

Forehead, Brow and upper eyelid balance
You do appear young and have beautiful contours of your upper face. It may just be the wide-angle photograph, but if your hairline is high, you can consider wearing it proudly:), changing your hairstyle and/or consider a hairline advancement of your anterior hairline. Your eyebrows appear to be in perfect position and the shape can be altered with eyebrow shaping and even botox. Your eyelid have a little extra skin which can be technically removed, but at you might wait until a bit older.
I hope this helps.
High brow and eyebrows
However brow lifts elevate the brows; how much higher do you want your brows to be? They already look quite high.
Many patients simply wear a different hair style that suits their hairline. Hair transplantation is another alternative that is relatively easy to do.
Definitely consult with some reputable surgeons in your area and get their thoughts.
Large forehead and low brows.
The photograph you provided really does not do you justice.
At your age, I suspect that your best option will be performing upper eyelid surgery. However, there is not substitute for an actual personal consultation to get to the bottom of what is actually needed.
One concern I have for you with a forehead lift is that you do have a long forehead lift. This means that some forehead surgeons would try to talk you into a pretrichal forehead lift which is an open forehead lift where the incision is made along the hairline. This is sold as a way to shorten the forehead and lower the hairline. The truth is that it does accomplish this but at a price. The price is that a scar is placed at the hairline. The incision is beveled to allow hair to grow through the incision. You will be told that this makes the scar disappear. That is not accurate. Even perfectly done, the hair will look compressed and abnormal. You will be bummed out about this change.
Less is more. I would be careful what you look for and I would encourage you to get more opinions before deciding how to proceed.
