Has your car been lower and/or aftermarket wheels or tires?

You probably snagged it hitting a dip on an on/off ramp while the wheel is turned out.

I have smoked both of mine with aggressive offset up front.

Not sure on cost, I did mine myself. Get both sides pinched and flared or this could happen.

A modified Eastwood fender finisher and a heat gun.

Don't pinch the fender with that tool it will only work one section at the time and might dent the lip.
Tape up the lip. Jack up your car remove the wheel. Use a 2x4 bout 4" long.
One end on the ground and hold it in position with your foot. Have the 2x4 go across the flared area and push the other end towards the car. slowly and with pulsing motion until the fender is back to its original position.
If you want to roll the fender on the inside used a fender roller.

I had the exact same issue.

It won't, but that's cool. Mine came out near mint and I'm no bodywork professional.

Lip pinched AND flared all with that tool and a heat gun.

OP is trying to bring the fender back to its original state. Therefore the tool you used doesn't work. As your picture shows your fender is still flared (bend out). The tool is just to be used for rolling the inner fender lip.
I'm not a bodywork professional either but I know the difference between rolling (pinching) the inner fender lip vs. flaring a fender. The tool is just to be used for rolling the inner fender lip and not for pushing the fender back to the original shape.

So it could happen again? I would not recommend that.

He should modify the fenders to prevent it happening again potentially causing more damage.

Good luck OP!

Not necessary only if his Tire/wheel set up is that aggressive that it requires both rolling and flaring. I had a semi aggressive setup up and it was enough to just roll the fender without flaring. (I had19x8.5 42mm offset wheel with 245/35-19 tires)

You might be ok straitening out your fender as well judging by the picture.

see picture below for visualization.
