With contour,I can do it like this:

if cv2.contourArea(cntr) <= 3: cv2.drawContours(img, [cntr], -1, (0, 0, 0), 1)

How to do it wiht ConnectedComponentsStats?

Probably connectedComponentsWithStats is not the most efficient way to remove dots. I would rather use the erosion or the opening (erosion+dilatation) morphology operator.

If you want to stuck with connectedComponentsWithStats, the code (C++) will be:

for(int i=0;i<stats.rows;i++)    //for each label 
    if(<ushort>(i,CC_STAT_AREA)<=3)    //if area<3
        for(int<float>(i,1)-1;y<<float>(i,1)+1;y++)   // scan the neighboring pixels
                if(<ushort>(x,y)==i)<uchar>(x,y))=0;   // if the label matches, set the current pixel to 0

I commented the code, so it will be easier to rewrite in Python.
