There are different type of patch antenna. Which type antenna you required? All patch antennas are Microstrip type, dimensions you can download.

You can draw the contour of the antenna on any mechanical layer end convert it to solid region:
1) draw the contour on mechanical1 layer for instance
2) select the contour
3) go to Tools>Convert>Create Region from Selected Primitives
4) click right button on the region and select Properties
5) change the machanical1 layer to TOP layer
