Is a Capsulorrhaphy a permanent procedure? Or does it have to be redone, if so how often?

Front and side view pictures would have been very helpful.
Very sorry about your problem.
The condition that you have - lateral implant displacement, requires lateral capsulorrhaphy (internal bra), however, most likely you have also capsule contracture medially and superiorly, that require capsulotomy (scar release) .
The capsullorrhaphy procedure involve cutting out a wedge of lateral capsule (scar) and suturing the scar edges with permanent sutures. The repair has to be protected for at least 6 weeks (wearing bra 24/7) in order to allow the scar to strengthen and hold the implant in place.
Make sure that your surgeon is experienced with that procedure, so that your condition does not recur or get's worse. If that is not the case, consult with experience board certified plastic surgeons who perform lots of redo breasts augmentation in accredited surgery center for your safety. Most importantly, check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and attractive with nice cleavage, perky, symmetrical and natural looking.
Best of luck,
