Will just cleaning up a section on the quarter panel of my bumper look horrible in comparison to the rest of the car?

I am getting a quarter panel on my Honda Civic cleaned up. Has some bad scratches on the bumper (plastic). I was looking to keep costs down and the auto body shop I am going through will section off the part of the bumper, sand it, and paint it. The mechanic doing it said he will blend the color, etc, but keeps making side comments about how I should just do the whole thing "right".
Will sectioning off the portion of the bumper look bad? I would imagine they would blend the color so that you couldn't tell. The autobody shop is well respected, not a Macco or other cheap place. I am afraid that the cost of the paint is what they might skimp on to keep this price down.
Has anyone out on mefe experienced a repair like this where just a certain section is fixed? Did it blend the right way?
I'm on the fence about ditching this place and trying another! Probably wouldn't hurt to get another estimate from another autobody shop anyways.
