I am not sure what the isolated red spots are. It is best to be evaluated in person to get a history and perform a thorough exam.

A hematoma after breast augmentation causes a rapid and dramatic enlargement of the breast involved, not red spots on the skin.  Please go back to your doctor for an evaluation.

Though it is probably nothing to be concerned about, it is best to visit your plastic surgeon for an evaluation.

In this isolated issue best to seek IN PERSON evaluations ASAP to alleviate your anxiety. Most likely it is nothing to be concerned about but seek in person views.

   These red spots may be a little bruise or a little irritation from dressings.  A hematoma would be accompanied by an increase in breast size.  You can always get an exam from your plastic surgeon if you are concerned.

It is difficult to say what is going on in the picture.  You should see and speak to the operating surgeon to determine the etiology of the spots.
