Somewhat: During pregnancy lactation consultants will use a device to help the nipple protrude somewhat to assit for breastfeeding, this may work in a non pregnant woman as well, can't remember what they are called, but a colleague or lactation nurse might.

Sometimes: Gently pull them out daily or twice a day for a few months. You have to stretch the ligaments.
