Can plastic surgery slim down the bones in your shoulders?

I was curious to see if there is a way to slim down the bones in your shoulders. I was hoping to get my mine slimmed down. It's not the fat that makes them large, it's the actual size of the bone.

That is quite unusual. I would suggest seeing a plastic surgeon for an evaluation.

I would not recommend any attempt to alter the structural framework of the skeleton in your shoulder region.
