What can be done for a recurring seroma six weeks after breast augmentation?

I had breast augmentation and developed a seroma in the right breast after six weeks post op. I have massive fluid leakage through my incision. The doctor re-operated to flush out the pocket and reinsert the implant. I have no real improvement and the incision continues to rupture to release fluid at least once a week. What can be done - I am absolutely desperate at this point.

This is a very unusual situation. A second opinion may be useful in this case. The fluid needs to be cultured. If it is sterile, then I would consider placing a drain to decompress the pocket. If this does not work I would remove it. Good Luck.
