I am a woman with wide manly shoulders that do not match the rest of my body. i have virtually no hips and since I have begun to lose weight my shoulders look even more prominent. Is there a way to shave down the bone or something? Pain wouldn't matter to me, I jus want them gone.
Is There a Surgery to Reduce the Width of my Shoulders?

Reduction of width of shoulders
There is in fact a way to reduce the width of your shoulders, but it may result in some limited range of motion and a slight rounded look of the shoulders. The clavicles (collar bone) can be shortened a bit and this would cause the entire shoulder to roll forward reducing the width. Again, this may reduce your range of motion a little, but many people who have Had collar bone fractures and healed with it shortened have excellent function.
Reducing the shoulders
I do not know of any way to specifically reduce the size of the shoulders. This is due to skeletal and muscular anatomy.
