Fluid in breast cavity
It sounds like you may have a seroma and probably need this to be treated. The best way to start to find a plastic surgeon in your area is to go to the ASPS or ASAPS websites to find someone in your area.
In a complicated case like this, make sure that you take all of your records with you to a surgeon or your choosing. Fluid collections can be easily determined, but physical exam or pictures would be necessary to provide any further information.
Realself has a list of surgeons in your area from which you may choose a consultant for an opinion. I can't offer any opinion based upon the narrative, as I can't make sense of the story--do you still have implants or not? Does your doctor thinks there is fluid?--this is not too difficult to determine. At any rate, an in person evaluation will be superior to any online advice. Best wishes, sorry to hear of your experience.
