Perhaps surgery: If you mean a high hairline then there are facial plastic surgery procedures which can lower the hairline some. See an experience surgeon for advice.

Yes: A pretrichial brow lift can actually lower the hairline and raise the brow!

Pretrichial lift: A pretrichial forehead lift is used in high foreheads. It involves an incision along the hairline and removal of the skin of the upper forehead. It will leave the hairline in place or slightly lower and raise the brows at the same time. It will leave a visible scar, but this can be minimized with good technique and hidden well depending on your hairstyle.

Absolutely: If you desire a browlift and have a high hairline then a tricophytic browlift can usually raise and reshape the eyebrows and lower the hairline at the same time. This needs to be planned and performed carefully, so please seek a consultation with board-certified facial plastic surgeon. I hope this information is helpful.
