If you have drawers in the top of the cupboard on each side you might be able to steal the space you need by cutting down the gable between the cupboard but you will lose drawers or you would have to some modifying to get some of the drawers back.

I've done this several times and you will loose the top drawer at least.You have to cut the sides down on the adjoining cabinets to accept the sink.After it is installed you can take the fronts off of the lost drawers and put some cleats behind the face frame to screw the drawer front to.It will look the same as before you have just lost the drawers.
