Not skilled in performing post bariatric surgery

I had surgery with Dr. Ponnuru in to 2010 for post-baratric surgery on my armsbriachoplasty. What a waste. My arm size did not decrease I ended up with scars that have no pigmentation at all and my arms look worst now that before the surgery. He is aware of my unhappiness and wanted me to reschedule but why should I have to pay again for something that he botched. My insurance company paid for the first surgery but are now giving me a hard time about the corrective surgery with another plastic surgeon. I would not use him for post bariatric surgery.
