Play it safe. Wait another three weeks

Thanks for your question and photos. I would wait for a full six week as that is how long the scar process takes to make your scar strong enough to tolerate whatever you do to it. At 3 weeks the scar is about 35% strong and make stretch or tear if you over do it, but again it depends on what kind of stretching you are doing. Removing your adenoma did not affect the muscle but you will need to let your breast scar on the inside before stressing it my opinion. Good Luck!
All the best,
