After developing seromas twice, I guess the procedure followed in the surgery should have been corrected after the first experience; one of the implants on the second surgery had a rupture before it was intoduced, and had to be replaced for another. Was it defective? Surgeon inadequate handling?. Anyway, I am reluctant to consider that my body rejects any kind of implant.
I had my old saline implants removed a year ago(capsular contraction, infection and rupture), and replaced with new ones. I developed a seroma 14 days later. After 7 days it still drains about 30-40 mililiters of liquid from my breast. I have no infection, and the doctor says the seroma will be eventually absorbed. How long it will take? Should I follow additional treatment?

It appear he is a proficient surgeon, but not fully competent to deal with side effects.
