As stated by Dr. Aldea, this is traditional considered in the realm of craniofacial surgeons with procedures freqeuntly accomplished in early childhood. There are few if any techniques for minimally invasive options.

Without a photograph the answer would have to be a definite - Maybe.

Craniofacial surgical techniques allow for cutting and moving bones around. Simpler yet, may be the placement of either Methylmethacrylate or other implants to shape the point to a flatter surface. This surgery is far from cheap, has significant complications and should ideally be done by surgeons with a lot of experience in it.
