Seroma surgically removed- what is the recovery time? Was surgery necessary?

Seroma from breast surgery
If you had swelling and pain from a seroma, then it is reasonable to drain it. Seromas can happen when we put implants into the breast and cannot be completely avoided. Capsular contracture is likely a response from a small amount of bacteria on the implant, not from a seroma. I would guess your recovery will be quicker form the second surgery because, as you said, the pocket has been formed.
