Is It Possible To Remove The Superficial Temporal Artery? (photo)

I would like to know the best proceedure to remove the superficial temporal artery. I suffer from two protruding arteris that bulge out of my temples up through my forehead. I would prefer surgery (a permanent removal solution) rather than trying to cover it up. I can not cover it up as I have a receeding hair line and cut my hair extremely close to my scalp. The picture is very similar to my condition

The superficial temporal artery can be surgically removed. However, there are other options that you may want to consider that are less invasive.  Please consult with a board certified specialist who can assist you in achieving the results you desire.
