I believe you should move quickly to have your implant removed. There appears to be a chronic infection which needs to clear. The implants appear to be on top of the muscle as well. I would remove them, clean up all infection and capsule I find, take cultures. I would treat with antibiotics for a week or so depending on cultures. Once everything has cleared up and your breasts are soft and nontender, I would consider another augmentation. Obviously I have not examined you,so you should see you plastic surgeon and get on the road to recovery

Safety first. You should strongly consider removing your implants and working on what is causing this infection. After it is cleared up you should be able to put implants in again. ac
Chronic infections in the setting of thin tissues is a recipe for problems. Replacing implants in that scenario is likely to lead to further issues: recurrent infection, implant extrusion, recurrent capsular contracture. In some cases, it is better to remove the implants and the capsules and let everything heal. Soft tissue augmentation in the future with fat transfer may be an option. Either way, removal is the safe route in such a situation.
PLEASE seek immediate diagnostic help!!!! You need to rule out an inflammatory cancer of the breasts. This is a 911...
Removing the implants might be something to consider, but first and foremost, you need to get in to see your surgeon. If you have an infection, the likelihood is that it will worsen until you take steps to correct it. It sounds like this needs immediate attention.
