A consultation would be necessary to determine whether this is a suture reaction or perhaps a sinus opening. You should be followed on a regular basis.

Without a consultation, it would be difficult to give you an accurate opinion.  However, it appears you you might have a deep absorbable suture that is coming to the surface.  This is quite common in this time frame.  Go back to your surgeon and have him/her take a look.
