Should I Worry ??
A sudden increase in swelling, especially if it is just on one side (you don't mention this) can be a sign of bleeding that needs to be addressed. An event such as a sneeze could trigger a bleed. A call without delay to your surgeon is in order.
Swelling and firmness after a sneeze.
I am surprised all of your swelling went away in one week. But if you see a significant change in size and firmness to either (or both) breasts, then you should get in contact with your surgeon. This could be a hematoma forming.
Increased pain and swelling one week after augmentation
If your breast has begun to swell and is painful after a sneeze or strain a week after breast augmentation you should get in and let your surgeon have a look right away. This is not typically how things should be.

I would suggest that you follow with your plastic surgeon ASAP. Only after direct examination, will your plastic surgeon be able to determine whether you have experienced a complication ( such as hematoma). The increased pain and swelling you have experienced may be signs of a problem that should be evaluated.
