I highly doubt it would work. From my experience, other laptops that I've opened up have "large" connections that makes reflowing easier. All the connections on the MBP are SO small, that if the connection did get damaged from the drop, I doubt reflowing would do anything but heat it up. Reflowing made my RRoD 1st gen xbox 360 last 3 months longer after the initial problem.
Plus, reflowing has the possibility of damaging something without knowing the specific problem.
