Is there any plastic surgery or craniofacial type of surgery that can be done to reduce the size of someone's head?

Is there any plastic surgery or craniofacial type of surgery that can be done to reduce the size of someone's head?

Head size: The head bones fuse and then grow as you age. But a surgery to reduce the head doesn't sound like a good idea. As you age your body may grow into your head size. Talk to your doctor about your feelings about your head size and you may benefit from talking about it.
