My primary concern would be to rule out infection. Please see a board certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate your condition.

As has been said, these symptoms require urgent evaluation by the surgeon who operated on you or another one if the first is not available.  If they are infected, they need removal.

If you have painful and hot implants  they possibly are infected, and you may need to have them removed.

You likely have a Grade IV capsular contracture from your description but it also could be an infection or numerous other potential conditions. Seek a board certified plastic surgeon to evaluate your condition.

Seven year old augmented breast should be painless and not be hot. Your history is suggestive of infection and or breast implant scarring (capsular contracture). You really should see your Plastic surgeon and have him help you. Dr. Peter A. Aldea
