How do I drill a hole in an already installed stainless steel sink?

I have already installed a Stainless steel sink and found that the hole is too small for my sink mixer.

Is there a way to make the hole (currently 30mm) bigger (45mm)?

Appreciate some advice on above...thks

partha, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
Thats going to be tough. Even if the sink was not installed it is hard to get a nice looking job cutting a bigger hole. You may want to check with an electrician that has a hydraulic hole cutter. I believe they are made by Greenlee. Good luck.

Here in KY dishwasher airgaps are required by Code. Plumbers use a keyhole saw to cut the hole for this in stainless steel sinks.

Thanks M/dragon and twelvepole for the advice. Will check with a plumber I know for both these options.

Please do not mention the keyhole saw. That is a drywall tool. Never seen one for metal, let alone stainless steel.
