Depend on swimming strokes, with strokes that side or back pointing to bottom should be good exercise for lumbar lordosis. But face pointing to bottom strokes may cause increase the overarching of a lower back, thus for freestyle and breast strokes if pain is noticed then try other strokes.

What is the effect of mild loss of lumbar lordosis is it a danger level does it need any surgery?

Mild loss of the lumbar lordosis is probably a result of spasm of the low back muscles (called paraspinal muscles).  Lordosis is the normal curvature of the lumbar spine (the part of your spine in your low back.  A lumbar lordosis usually curves so that the concave side faces your back and the convex side faces your front.  With poor biomechanics, muscle spasm, or some injuries you can lose this natural curve.  A loss of lumbar lordorsis is refered to as alordosis or hypolordosis.  This by itself is generally not considered an indication for surgery.  You may be able to restore your lordotic curve with some chiropractic techniques like Chiropractic Biophysics or Pettibon.
