Metopic synostosis in Adults. Can it be corrected?

I am 19 years old and i have a skull deformity. After checking on the internet i found out that it is trigonocephaly(metopic synostois). My frontal skull shape is triangular and the metpoic ridge is evident. This greatly affects me pshycologically and socially as i am not able to decide my hairstyle and look very unproffesional due to it. Pls tell me if this can be corrected through cosmetic or other procedures and which medical center in the world should i contact?

Check with a maxillofacial surgery center at a university teaching hospital.  While such procedures are undertaken in early childhood when continued growth will occur, it is not clear whether correction is appropriate as an adult.
