My doctor had my breast drained 3 times along with putting in a drain but my breast kept swelling. He finally said my only options were to take them out or live with it. I chose to live with it but I never heard any thing about infection risk. Have you ever encountered a seroma that wouldnt go away?

Seroma 10 years after breast implants augmentation
From your history you need to have the capsule examined by a pathologist for ALCL in which case removal of the implant and capsule is usually curative.
My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship.
Ten year old seroma
Breast seroma which will not go away
I can't quite follow your story about a seroma that developed after an implant replacement ten years ago, however we have never seen a breast seroma persist. Something does not add up. Perhaps you will need a second opinion, and a breast ultrasound to see if the issue is really a seroma, and if a seroma is present there must be an underlying cause (not good).
