I don't think there are any tools like that, however what i would do is select all of the edges on the top, go to edit polygons -> extrude edge, then pull the edges out and scale them however youd like.. That work?

This is done with Edit Polygons->extrude edge, with curve to control how the cylinder open. Division is set to 5 to get decent curvature

But unfortunately in the extrude edge with curve, you need to select each edge and corresponding curve.
