Constantly pruning them back will keep them small. Just reduce the length of the branches by cutting them back to an old leaf scar and new branches will form. I've seen trees pruned into lollipop shapes and they look really interesting. Just pinch and prune whenever a branch needs to be shortened and you can keep your tree small.
