As for ab work, check with your surgeon. 

However since it's weight loss you want try doing aerobic exercise.  Swimming, brisk walking, running, or hiking will all help to boost your metabolism and burn calories.  There is no secret or tricks to weight loss, it's all about reducing calories and increasing exercise.

Good luck!
