Infection with implants
I would recommend that your friend return to her surgeon. It sounds from your description that the infection is still present and your friend needs to be reevaluated. A culture would be helpful and the course of treatment will likely need to be altered.
Breast implant Infection
Continued drainage and open wound "Holes in the scar" means the infection is still there. may be the capsule is left in and is infected. Consult your plastic surgeon for possible exploration of the breast, removal of the capsule and debridement of all necrotic tissue, appropriate antibiotics based on tissue culture. Look for strange uncommon bacteria like mycobacteria (Requires 6 weeks to grow in cultures)
