Recurrent Opening of Surgical Wound Post Breast Augmentation

I has saline implants placed under the muscles in Feb. The implants were not as soft as I thought they would be. I went back to my plastic surgeon and had him replace them with silicone in early Aug of the same year.
Pros: I got bigger boobs, the silicone are much softer than the saline even under the muscle. My clothes already fit better.
Cons: I have been out of commission for 2 months. Sleeping is very difficult as I have a hard time on my back. I have not been able to exercise and am fattening up like a Thanksgiving turkey!The incision under my right breast opened up after 6 days. I went to see him immediately, he flushed it out and stitched it up on the outside. 2 weeks later I returned to have the stitches removed and as soon as the stitches were removed, about 1.5 inches ( 1/3rd of the line) of the suture line opened up.!! So he cleaned the area and restitched me up again. This time I am wearing a surgical bra 24 hours a day. It's been 1 week. IThe site has steri-strips, small gauze and a large clear tegra-derm to seal it up. Do you think this needs air to heal? Is there something I am doing wrong or are there any supplements I can take to help myself heal? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I've been on 2 different courses of antibiotics and so far no signs of infection. And I'm not on any topical or oral steroids.
