Pre operative instructions should be followed before having a tummy tuck.

At this point, excercise will not make a difference.  Just make sure you follow all of the directions from your PS and make sure you are avoiding all of the medications and vitamins you were advised not to use.  Make sure you are not smoking before or after the procedure.
