how can raise the toliet flange?

I want to tile the bathroom upstairs, but I need to put
down 1/2" plywood and 1/4" wonderboard to match the thickness of the rest of the floor upstairs.

When I removed the vinyl floor in the bathroom it was glued to 1/4" plywood that you could see had gotten wet at sometime.

The 1/4" plywood had been cutout around the flange and was not flush with the rest of the 1/4" plywood, probably why the floor was wet.

There is no room around the flange and the flange is bolted solid to the floor. The flange is also attached to an elbow that meets up with the 3" pvc in the wall about 18-20" away.

Is there anyway to raise the flange the 3/4" plus the thickness of the tile, without tearing out the finished drywall above the kitchen cabinets?
