Dissatisfaction With Mommy Makeover
Although your results are wanting, you don't have a case for malpractice. The discharge is from small holes in your skin that have 'epithelialized', which means they are lined with skin that sloughs off dead layers, accumulating in the holes where bacteria grow.
My recommendation is start planning for revision surgery for both your breasts and tummy. You'll need to convert to a formal breast lift which will give you superior breast shape and fine scars. You'll need a full tummy tuck to improve your abdomen.
You should visit a few ABPS certified/ASAPS member surgeons.
Best of luck!
Breast augmentation and tummy tuck
You need to get a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. There is a residency program in Houston which would be a possibility. I don't know many of the surgeons in your area, but can recommend Dr. Morgan Norris as a very capable and board certified plastic surgeon in the Houston area.

Bad scars after Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck
Thanks for your question and photos. Based on your description you have an EIC or epidermal inclusion cyst which is when skin gets stuck under the skin and still produces sebum or oil under the skin. It has a bad smell and needs to be removed. As far as the bulging from your stomach, it appears that you have minimal work done and thus the result is less than ideal. I would recommend going back to your plastic surgeon and seeing what exactly was done as it appears that your upper abdomen was not corrected. If your uncomfortable with your surgeon, get several consultations with board certified plastic surgeons. I would recommend Dr. Morales. He does great work. Good Luck!
All the best,
