NMS but: Unless it is painful I believe time will likely be the best healer. If the swelling fails to improve after 2 weeks , consult your plastic surgeon -even though it will take a lot of trauma to rupture a silicone implant.

I would begin: with your PCP (Primary Care) GP or Family physician or GYN...If consultation with a Plastic surgeon is necessary follow their lead. Hope this is helpful!
