Changing hair texture with surgery
There is no way to change the hair texture with surgery. Certain hair care products and chemical treatments can affect the texture of the hair. Topical treatments like minoxidil may also affect the texture, as can hormonal changes such as pregnancy or thyroid issues, but all of these are very unpredictable.
All the best,

At this point, there is no surgery that can change hair texture. Some medications or conditions can change the texture of hair. For example, minoxidil makes hair thicker; certain conditions like thyroid imbalance can change the hair texture.
Although there is no surgery at this time, I feel in the next decade new drugs can emerge to address hair texture and color. We shall see....

Re: Hair Replacement Surgery for Texture
The texture of your hair is governed by DNA. DNA is a code in your cells which provides instructions on how to make specific protein, like hair. As far as hair surgeries, the only type of procedure that can be done is to increase the amount of hair, by transferring follicles from one area of the body to the scalp.
In the most idealistic sense, it would be necessary to change the DNA code of your hair follicles in order to grow softer, smoother, shinier hair. However, science is a long way from making this an actual reality.
Texture does not change
In hair transplantation, the "donor" hairs harvested from the back of the scalp pretty much maintain their same characteristics when they are moved and transplanted to the new grafted areas of the scalp. Their texture, thickness, color or lack their of, and rate of growth are all determined by the genes in the hair follicles. Those do not change.
Changing Hair Texture with Transplantation
The only texture change that can happen with a transplant is that which results from the hairs in the back of the head now growing in an area of the front or other area.
