I am assuming you mean androgenetic alopecia or male patterned hair loss which is a common cause of hair loss in women. Whether you chose a hairline advancement or a hair transplant either can achieve your desired result. I recommend speaking with a hair transplant specialist so that you can discuss both procedures and weigh the pros and cons of both for yourself. Also, a hair transplant specialist should evaluate whether you have female patterned balding and require medication in addition to the transplant. It is best to attach a photo for a more concise answer.
Hairline lowering and filler
A hairline lowering is a commonly performed procedure in my practice. Certainly patients of a wide range of ages undergo this procedure including patients in their 40s. Pictures would be helpful to determine the best recommendation for you. Also a further description of your alopecia such as location, stability over the past 23 years, previous treatments, etc... These are all items that would be discussed and more during a thorough history and physical.
Forehead lowering or hair transplant to lower the hair line is possible but you would need to see a doctor for an examination.

The options for treatment are various and the most important question is: is your alopecia stable? Depending on the answer the different options should be considered. If it is stable then you would be a candidate for hairline advancement. There are also various options for filling the temples, some of them permanent. Best of luck!
