TT and pilates
Doing core exercises and strengthening like Pilates will be beneficial both before and after surgery. Obviously you will have to wait until you get clearance from your PS before resuming Pilates though. Best of luck to you
Will pilates be good before a Tummy Tuck
It is important to keep your core muscles and back muscles strong, so I would encourage you to continue with a healthy exercise program and resume it after your recovery.
Pilates before Tummy Tuck
Pilates and any exercise you do prior to your surgery will absolutely help. Recovering from surgery, especially a tummy tuck, puts a big stress on your body. Ensuring that you are at a healthy weight, following a healthy diet, and exercising regularly will all benefit you during your recovery. Good Luck!

You can absolutely continue exercise (pilates) before your surgery. The more weight you lose before surgery the better your outcome will be.
Anything you do to strengthen your body from both a physical and nutritional standpoint will only be beneficial to you as you have surgery and during recovery. You are correct that exercise cannot mend the abdominal wall issues that you have, but having a strong core will be helpful during recovery. Good thinking!
