I was wondering if it is possible that the fourth dimension could be represented as the distance around a third dimensional object ? Meaning that you would be able to see the front and the back of the object at the same time.

Let's start by asking what you mean by "see." That implies perception through the eyes, retina, occipital and other lobes of incoming photons themselves detected by cone and rod style receptors.

If instead you mean "perceive" or "experience," then we run into the same challenges as all of our perceptions are generated by stimuli both external and internal.

I suspect it's ikely you're trying to query the nature of time itself, though, and wondering if past and future all happen simultaneously and can be measured some how using instruments and 3D objects?

Time is the fourth dimension in the spacetime model of the Universe.
