It just started bothering me this summer could it be do to change of weather? also I noticed that I have a few tiny black dots around the nipple itself that comes off but comes right back. Please get back to me

I suspect that this issue is not directly related to your surgery although it is possible. It may be related in that there may be some scar tissue pulling on the skin and irritating it. This would typically present more with dimpling of the skin, though.
It may be that you have a mild skin infection of the area. This may be due to a bacteria or a fungal skin infection. I'd recommend you have your doctor take a look at this to see what is going on.
