Well not entirely as they are designed to cope with internal pressure whilst sealed.

You will struggle to 'force' it back in to shape,once the plastic goes out of shape then it's a real job to get it back to it's original form.
IIRC I have read some where that when working on plastic fuel tanks you have a limited amount of time to carry out work on them before they start to distort if they are not re-sealed.
