In brief: Maybe
Medication and life style changes can prevent progression and in some cases cause some reversal of the disease.

In brief: Yes, up to a point
Aggressive reduction of low density lipoprotein (fat carrying protein) particle concentrations along with high number of functional large high density lipoprotein particle concentrations can prevent and reverse atherosclerosis, up to a point.
Low blood sugar, blood pressure, not smoking, etc. Also important. However, our bodies rebuild based on previous structure - there is a limit.
