In the absence of fever, chills, sweats, etc., it's relatively likely that it is a small problem and, even, that it may go away on its own. However, at four days post-op that is not something you can reasonable take for granted. You should contact your surgeon and discuss it with him/her. You may need to be seen in person just to be sure.
I hope that this helps and good luck,

Among other possibilities is a defect in the capsule from the first surgery that permitting the implant to "herniate" through that area. This may improve as the capsule reforms. .
But there are numerous other possibilities, and it will take an actual exam to make a determination. Please call your surgeon to discuss this.
All the best.
