The Mommy Makeover Dr. Avi Islur

Understanding the Different Procedures in a Mommy Makeover

Embracing motherhood is an extraordinary blessing in life. The journey of pregnancy brings about numerous transformations to a woman’s body, often accompanied by unexpected surprises. Our Mommy Makeover procedure has gained immense popularity as a comprehensive surgical solution, addressing both breast and body contouring needs.

The effects of pregnancy extend beyond loose, sagging skin, encompassing weakened abdominal muscles and stubborn fat deposits that prove resistant to traditional diet and exercise. Reclaiming your pre-pregnancy body and attaining a physique that brings you joy can be a challenging endeavour. However, the dedicated team at Dr. Avi Islur’s state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery centre, The First Glance Aesthetic Clinic & Surgery Centre is here to support you every step of the way in your transformative Mommy Makeover journey in Winnipeg, MB.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover refers to a customized combination of cosmetic procedures designed to address the physical changes that occur in a woman’s body as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. It typically involves a combination of procedures such as breast augmentation or lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, and sometimes additional treatments like thigh lift, arm lift or vaginal rejuvenation.

Tummy Tuck

An abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a Tummy Tuck, is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the abdomen by removing excess skin, tissue, and fat. It is often sought by individuals who have experienced significant weight loss, pregnancy, or have loose abdominal skin due to aging or genetic factors.

During the procedure, Dr. Avi Islur will make an incision in the lower abdomen, typically along the bikini line. Through this incision, he removes excess skin and fat while also tightening the underlying abdominal muscles, if necessary. The remaining skin is then repositioned and sutured to create a tighter, smoother abdominal contour. The removal of excess skin, tissue, and fat results in a flatter and more toned appearance of the abdomen. It can also help reduce the appearance of stretch marks in the treated area.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body while also contouring and sculpting the desired areas. Liposuction is often combined with other procedures to create a more harmonious and balanced look. During your Mommy Makeover with liposuction, Dr. Avi Islur will make a small incision in the targeted area. A thin tube called a cannula is then inserted through these incisions, and the excess fat is suctioned out using a specialized suction device. He strategically maneuvers the cannula to precisely remove fat deposits, sculpting the body to achieve a more desirable shape and contour.

Liposuction is effective for treating various areas of the body, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and back including the “love handles”. It can address localized pockets of fat that are resistant to weight loss efforts, allowing for enhanced body proportions and a more balanced overall appearance!

Vaginal Rejuvenation

One common procedure requested for Mommy Makeovers is vaginal rejuvenation or vaginal tightening. This procedure focuses on tightening the vaginal muscles and tissues, which may have become stretched or weakened due to factors such as childbirth, aging, or hormonal changes. Through the use of a specialized laser which carefully and precisely tightens the vaginal walls, restoring firmness and elasticity, the treatment will help enhance muscle tone, improve sexual satisfaction, and increase confidence.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a widely performed procedure that can enhance the shape and volume of the breasts. It is a common component of the Mommy Makeover. During your Mommy Makeover, Dr. Avi Islur can use breast implants to increase the size and fullness of the breasts. This can help restore lost volume, correct asymmetry, and improve overall breast shape. Breast augmentation can provide various benefits to women seeking to regain their pre-pregnancy breast appearance. It can boost self-confidence, improve body proportions, and restore a youthful contour! The choice of implant type, size, and placement technique is based on individual preferences, body proportions, and desired outcomes, this can be discussed during your consultation with your Winnipeg plastic surgeon.

Breast Lift

Breastfeeding is a beautiful and natural part of motherhood, but it can result in changes to the breasts, such as sagging and loss of volume. Many moms who desire to reshape or lift their breasts without the use of implants may find a breast lift to be an excellent option. A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to elevate the breast tissue and nipple and reshape the breasts. It focuses on repositioning the existing breast tissue, tightening the surrounding skin, and restoring a more youthful and lifted appearance. Unlike breast augmentation, which involves the placement of implants to enhance volume, a breast lift solely addresses the existing breast tissue position and contour.

Arm Lift or Thigh Lift

An arm or thigh lift can be incorporated into your Mommy Makeover surgery plan to address the physical changes experienced by women after pregnancy and childbirth. These procedures can help contour and tighten the arms and thighs, enhancing the overall body shape and restoring a more youthful appearance. These procedures can complement other surgeries such as breast augmentation or lift and tummy tuck, creating a harmonious transformation of multiple areas affected by pregnancy and childbirth.

  • An arm lift, also known as Brachioplasty, focuses on reducing excess skin and fat in the upper arms. During the procedure, Avi Islur creates an incision typically on the underside or back of the arms, removes excess skin and fat, and tightens the remaining tissue. This results in smoother, firmer arms with improved contour and reduced sagging.
  • A thigh lift, on the other hand, targets the excess skin and fat in the thighs, addressing concerns such as loose skin, cellulite, and lack of definition. Islur makes incisions in strategic locations, often hidden in the groin crease or along the inner thigh. He then removes excess skin and fat and tightens the remaining tissue. This leads to more toned and sculpted thighs, enhancing the overall body proportion and silhouette.

Motherhood is undeniably one of the most vital and challenging roles in existence. Your dedication and sacrifices in nurturing your little ones have been immense. Now, it is finally the moment to prioritize self-care and indulge in well-deserved personal attention!
