Would I be eligible for US army fitness test after tummy tuck due to massive weight loss?

Military fitness standards and cosmetic surgery
The fact that you've had cosmetic surgery should not affect your candidacy to participate in required military fitness tests (I used to be a General Surgeon in the US Navy). Have fun !
When am I ready for activity after a tummy tuck?
As a reserve Navy officer who knows the details for the Marines, you'll be ready for a fit rep in around 2-3 months if you require muscle tightening and 4-6 weeks if only skin excision is required. Congratulations!
US Army Fitness Test
If you are physically fit i.e. Good cardiac pulmonary function then scars from surgery should not matter but I would check with the military about any prerequisites for testing.
