Water damage to a ceiling.

Had a leak from the bath (the plumber had forgot to tighten the hot water connection into the bath tap) down on to the utility room ceiling.
Anyway the builder had agreed to sort the problem and re-decorate..
The utility ceiling has a bubble in the plaster of about 2 feet long by 1 feet wide. I have agreed with the builder to wait for the ceiling to dry out.
The thing is, should the builder replace the plaster board or will it be ok when it dries out. I presume he will take down the bubble and re-plaster the damaged area.

I don’t what a bad job done so what should I ask him to do?

It will be quicker for the builder to cut out a section and repairs. You wouldn't have to wait for it to dried out this way.
