Bad ceiling patch

I have a bad ceiling patch in a home I just purchased. Itís seems to taunt me every time I walk by. It does looks saggy as i think they built it up too much. It is dry and sound per home inspector. It just looks bad. Anyone have any ideas how to blend in a bit especially the edges? Thank you in advance.

Approximately 4ft in diameter

I'd bet if you placed a straightedge over it you'd find depressions. Since it's difficult to sand painted excess mud I'd skim it smooth with joint compound and then try to match the texture of the rest of the ceiling.

almost forgot welcome to the forums!

Matching a texture is difficult, it may need to have someone who is experianced come in which is tough to justify for a single repair!

Guess it depends how loud it yells at you!
