Could I have torn the muscle over my implant in a traumatic wake board wreck?

Torn muscle over breast implant
yes, you certainly could have torn/damaged muscle and tissue. I recommend that you be examined in person ASAP and your Doctor may also order imaging to be done for your breast to determine if you have bleeding inside the pocket.

Torn Pectoralis Muscle after Breast Augmentation
Thanks for your question. It does seem that you have caused trauma that could have torn your muscle or capsule. It usually involves severe bruising but you did not mention that. The fact that is 8 days old means that it have torn but not been so severe. Usually if you have a collection of blood, your breast swells a lot more on the side where the injury occurred. I would see your plastic surgeon immediately just to make sure it is something not severe. There may be nothing that can be done immediately. But a in person exam is the best course of action. Good Luck.
