In brief: Yes

Muscles atrophy after surgery and/or nonuse.

In brief: Yes

Muscles do heal. Usually, surgeons avoid muscles when possible.
However, sometimes going through muscle is inevitable. Where possible, muscle can be stitched back together, which allows for better healing and reduced complications in the future.
