I have had my implants for 16 yrs now and I have been getting stabbing like pains in the side and now recently I feel as if the implant itself has moved and is pushing out on the left breast, I also am feeling a cold feeling in certain spots on the breast as well. Thank you

You are describing some unusual symptoms and after sixteen years you may want to get them checked out.

Strange sensations in breast implants 16 years after surgery
These are not typical complaints and certainly not indicative of an "air pocket" which is highly unlikely. See a board certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation.
Breast implants need good evaluation after 16 years.
I am not sure what's wrong with your breast implants, but it is not an air pocket. They could be ruptured. You need a good exam, and an MRI of the breasts.
