patching ceiling drywall

While I was putting in a ceiling fan, the drywall puched from the attic side out a bit on the ceiling, Do I push it back up and spackle, or dig it out and patch? It is about a 2"x 2" area.

If the area that is sagging has a joist behind it, then perhaps screwing the drywall to the joist will remove the sag. If not, affected area will have to be removed and patch made.
