I have been taught how to put a soundpost back up, and I have the tool in my case to do it, but I would take my violin to the luthier rather than try it myself. I would also suggest to someone else whose soundpost fell to go to their luthier, although if they insisted, I would try. I have not done it in a while, so I am not confident I could still do it very well, and adjusting it so the instrument sounds really good is an art which I have not mastered.
