Tummy Tuck and aggressive weight lifting, is there a limit?

Say 1 year or more post op and the person is back in shape. Basically we all have personal limits but if I had prior to surgery been able to say bench press 300 pounds, squat 400 pounds deadlift 500 pounds would I recover strength back to pre op provided I built myself back up after the tummy tuck.

Good idea. I'll ask, but one would think that if the sutures used on the inside are all dissolving kind that wouldn't matter.

I would ask a sportsmedicine Dr on this one. Maybe one of the PS's can comment on incision strength related to your sport.

Anybody out there know an answer to this? Will my body bounce back with presumming I heal fully, properly if you will, then work my way back slowly to lifting shape?
