In brief: Follow through

Periodontal surgery is to help you keep your teeth and the attachment that holds your teeth to the jaw bone.
Proper flossing and home care will help you maintain your results but often surgery is the only way to get rid of the infection or defect that caused the problem in the first place. Follow the post operative instructions and take medications as directed for the best outcome.
