A dermal filler is a good choice to lift indentations. I would personally avoid permanent products like silicone.  I have seen numerous problems iwih granulomas and inflammatory responses from it.

Injectable fillers may improve a depressed scar after mole removal.

A photo would be helpful, but in general, a soft-tissue indentation following mole removal may benefit from a carefully performed Injectable Filler treatment. My personal preference is to use Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results.

Hope this helps.
