Can you still exercise after an umbilical hernia surgery, or that makes it a even bigger chance of getting another hernia again?

I got this umbilical hernia cause of pregnancy 4 years ago, and I still look pregnant cause of it, its just been growing and growing, when they remove the hernia do you think my tummy will go back to normal or I would need lipo after that, because I think exercise will just make me more hernias right?
