Small wound separations after a breast reduction
These ares could be from suture knot infections. Most will heal fine with conservative management. The suture knots need to be removed so that these areas can heal.

Some superficial separation/healing problems can occur after breast reduction/lifting surgery. However, nothing will replace in person physical examination when it comes to ruling out complications, such as infection etc. Given your description and concerns, it may be in your best interests to seek earlier than already scheduled follow-up.
