Guttate psoriasis flare up is caused MOST COMMONLY by bacterial infection (quick search).

Advice to see a dermatologist. NO elective surgery while the flare up of guttate psoriasis.

Discuss with dermatologist and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

It would be best to wait until your flare up is controlled. I would discuss with your dermatologist on getting the flare up controlled as well as medications to minimize a flare up in preparation for your surgery

Your surgeon is not going to do it. You should see your dermatologist
