Toilet flange and wax ring

As I'm slowly completing my bathroom floor, It's becoming apparrent that the toilet drain will lie below floor level when all is complete (ply, hardibacker, heating mat, leveling compound, thin set and tiles). Are there easy fixes for this (ie; large flange washers or extension rings) or is it a bigger issue than that? Right now I have the Hardibacker down but have not gone further.

I would raise the flange to the new foor level if possible but there are flange extenders available.

Like Jim said--Flange extender if needed----wax extender ring usually is all that it takes.-Mike-
