Fluid around an implant can been right after surgery, or can develope later due to stresses and motion of the implant in the pocket. The fluid itself will not likely cause pain, and it would be best to see your surgeon to sort things out.

I would need more facts and need to perform an exam to figure this out.  Fluid itself does not cause pain unless there is a larger volume. When was your surgery?  two days ago? a  month ago, a year ago.. etc.. Best to see your surgeon.
