Very small dent in front plastic facia

Got a small dent somehow. Round, not deep at all, about the size of a ping pong ball over even smaller. No crack in paint.
Photos don't even show it. Can this be suctioned cupped out or pushed out from behind, or if plastic is pushed in is it there forever.
Only found it whike detailing car.

my guess is the plastic is probably stretched to make this dent, you could try pushing it out from the other side might not look perfect put maybe better then now

Sorry to hear you have a dent on your car. Trust me I know how it feels. Unfortunately plastic is really tough to fix, you can try gently heating up the spot with a heat gun(do it very gently and in circular motions so the pain isn't damaged) and try to pop it out from behind if you can.
Good luck and keep us posted

I am fairly sure you wont be able to make it perfect, plastic does not form like metal.. one cannot simply push on the other side to make it flawless again, its like paper once its crumbled it cannot be flawless, but like the post above me, if you heat gun the inside alittle at a time and slowly push out, you may get it to where you can live with it, otherwise its bodyshop time..
