Clubbed thumbs

I've had clubbed thumbs all my life. I hate them, i curse them i cannot stand looking at them. especially being a woman personal appearance matters a lot. When i was a little girl I was teased about them a lot.
My question is this: is there any surgery that may be perfomed to correct the appearance of them? Have anyone ever tried to do so? Appreciate your info and any references.

It is possible to surgically improve clubbed fingers and thumb.  I suggest you be examined by a hand specialist (preferably some who has a background in plastic surgery, rather than orthopedics or general surgery).
