The position of your implants is not going to affect the pain.
The only way to know is have your implants removed. Breast implant removal should be performed with complete en bloc capsulectomy. The capsule should not be left in place or the space will not heal. In patients that believe that their implants are causing them illness, leaving the capsule behind will not result in any improvement in their symptoms. After the explantation with capsulectomy is healed, you can develop an plan for further surgery if it is warranted and is safe from a technical standpoint.
With implant removal, you may also need a lift. I would suggest finding a board certified plastic surgeon in your area.
Thank you for your question and pictures. If the surgeon performs a lift at the same time as the explantation you should have a nice shape and end result. Make sure you see plenty of before/after photos from your surgeon so you can see what their work. Also it is important especially with this surgery that you go to someone that does a lot of explantation surgeries. Best of luck to you

Normally removal of implants does not lead to severe pain from surgery. Drains should be used after to prevent seroma formation. A lift can be performed at the same time
