Pain around an otherwise asymptomatic implant is not a bad sign but it may be an early indication of caspular contracture. You should see a plastic surgeon for an evaulation. IT could also be a fold or ripple causing tenderness.

If you are having pain and rippling with your implants after five years, I suggest that you see a plastic surgeon to be evaluated.
