Bowed Ceiling

I had an electrician buddy come do some wiring for me. He stepped on my newly installed ceiling to my porch. Didn't brake it but pushed it down. It is very visible from the porch. Any suggestions on how to get it back in place? Trying to fix it with little damage to the new paint job on the ceiling. It seperated the ceiling panel from 1X4's.

I think you may have to replace the panel. You might be able to remove it and then straighten it out on a flat surface with a rubber mallet but you will always be able to see some remnant of the damage.
