I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you ask your plastic surgeon to refer you to someone locally to best manage your wound care/healing process.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!

Sorry that your surgeon is so far away, but that is a problem when you travel far away for a procedure. You are best to see a plastic surgeon locally to advise you. Good luck.
Open wound on breasts after augmentation
Sorry to hear about your problems. From what I can see, this is something that needs immediate attention in person. you have a wound separation and if this persists, the implant will be exposed and you will have to have it removed. I recommend you go see a board-certified PS today for evaluation.

Those small areas are open wounds, and should heal on their own in the next 1-2 weeks. Keep them clean and moist with ointment. It may create a widened scar that you would want revised at a later date. Also, watch for signs of infection, which isn't apparent from those photos.
