Pruning Established Fig Tree

My fig tree is approximately 10 feet tall. I am not able to get to the figs at top. Can I cut off some of the taller limbs at the top? Will it hurt the tree. Also, will it hurt the tree if I cut some of the major limbs at the top of their growth? In other words, trim the top back about 3 feet.
