Especially the bump on the top

Thank you for your question photo. The areas of redness and "bump" likely represent absorbable suture. You may be having a superficial reaction/infection. Although these areas generally heal without incident, I suggest you have your plastic surgeon examine and evaluate you. Best regards.

it appears that you are spitting sutures at those points. Warm soaks 3x a day and see your doctor every couple of weeks. Should be fine as it doesn't look like an infection.

Good afternoon and thank you for your question.  This may be a stitch reaction.  Please be checked by your surgeon to manage it appropriately for the best result.

Best of Luck,
