Ceiling Fan Repair
 
Kitchen ceiling fan was hit by accident and plastic junction box came out of ceiling partially. No brace was there. No attic above since it is a two story. Is there an adjustable brace that can be installed with Junction box so I don't have to cut a large hole in the ceiling to install a new junction box with brace? Thank you.

The fan should never have been hung on a plastic box.

There are plastic fan boxes that are commonly used. They mount to the joist with lag screws and work fine.
