This is sometimes the result of the surgical skin preparation, which can be harsh on the skin. Combined with the stress of surgery and the skin stretching, this can happen. Steroid creams, minocycline can help.
Thank you for your questions. Unfortunately, without a photograph, it is not possible to evaluate the pimples. Best to consult with your physician to evaluate any new skin condition. Best of luck.
Post op changes
This should clear up over time. Try to keep the skin clean and dry, and if necessary speak with a dermatologist if it doesn't clear up over the next few weeks.
Nothing to worry about
Based on your description there may be areas of sutures that are making their way to the surface of the skin. These usually resolve but occasionally the sutures may need to be removed. Either way this is nothing to worry about. Close follow up with your plastic surgeon is important to ensure that everything is healing appropriately.Best wishes,Dr. Ravi Somayazula
