Hi how bad is your ceiling under the polystyrene tiles it could be a case of getting them off and just replaster the ceiling, I would not leave the polystyrene where they are for health and safety hope this helps

Get rid of polystyrene tiles asap! When polystyrene tiles catch fire they drip like napalm and give off cyanide gas in their thick black smoke . Deadly ! Once off , assess the condition of ceiling .Probably won't be too bad , probably just an over skim at the very worse !
Good luck !
