you can go for a XY plot and plot the y+ for a particlular surface.

for maintaining y+, go for grid adaptation

Better way - do a contour plot of y+ on your surfaces. You can clip it to the ranges of 1-30 and 30-300. Typically, most turbulence models will not be accurate in the 1-30 range (unless you use something like the K-Eps with enhanched wall functions).

Using the contour plots is a nice way, I typically set it to 1-30, which means that red regions indicated good y+ values (I manually check for y+ max < 300), and any green-blue regions means that the y+ values need to be looked at.
