Banana roll fat is a type of excess bum fat that accumulates just below the buttock area. It typically collects between the lower buttock and the top of the thigh and looks as if a crescent-shaped roll of fat has been placed just below the buttocks. The presence of banana roll fat bulges make it difficult for a person to achieve a pert and sculpted figure around their buttocks and thighs. This is because excess subcutaneous fat has collected in the area, making the lower buttocks look saggy and misshapen, even in instances where the rest of the body is trim.
While banana rolls are a sign of excess fat build-up in the body, they are not necessarily the sole problem of an overweight person. A genetic predisposition, or the presence of a slow metabolism can encourage excess fat accumulation in the form of a banana roll. Hormones can also encourage fat accumulation in instances like pregnancy, when the body builds up fat stores across the thighs, buttocks and hips to aid with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Having a sedentary lifestyle can also have a major impact on the likelihood of fat accumulating just below the buttock area. If you have a desk job and don’t move much throughout the day, your body is more likely to store excess calories as fat across the thigh and lower buttock area, creating larger banana rolls in the process.
One of the most common ways to get rid of banana rolls quickly is opting for a surgical Brazilian Butt Lift treatment, also known as the BBL. However, this treatment has been shown to be one of the riskiest cosmetic procedures available, as it surgically removes fat from areas like the thighs using a fat graft, before replanting it in the buttock area. This has the effect of making the buttocks look more pronounced, rounded and full. With serious risks like scarring and tissue damage, the procedure comes with an official warning from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, who have labelled it as the world’s most risky cosmetic treatment.
Thankfully, a range of safe and effective alternative treatments exists to help patients achieve greater definition between the buttocks and the thighs in an effort to minimise the banana roll and maximise the shape of rounded buttocks. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we specialise in leading body contouring procedures that get rid of banana rolls without surgery, side effects or unnecessary downtime. Our non-surgical butt lift combines Ultherapy and EMSculpt to lift and tighten skin around the butt while reducing the appearance of banana rolls.
We also offer CoolSculpting fat freezing treatments to reduce the size of subcutaneous fat across a person’s banana rolls.
For most women, the presence of fat deposits under their bottom is not a cosmetic issue at all. In fact, it is completely natural for women and men to store fat in this area, so people shouldn’t view having banana rolls as a sign of being unfit or overweight. Many slim and fit women still have banana roll fat bulges and they are completely comfortable and proud to have them as they are a natural feature of many people’s body shapes. Issues can arise however when individuals feel that the shape of their under buttocks is starting to change. A sudden build-up of banana roll fat can create an unbalanced look, where the bottom (bum) looks as if it is sagging.
The presence of banana fat bulges can also prevent women from getting a more voluptuous or rounded shape to their buttocks, especially if they are aspiring to gain a vivacious derriere, as showcased by a host of celebrities from Kim Kardashian to Beyonce. The extra pillow of banana roll fat can create a distorted shape in some cases, preventing women from achieving the pert, lifted and contoured look they are searching for.
In these instances, people can look to exploring banana roll treatments like butt exercises and body shaping procedures to help create a more streamlined and defined shape to the lower buttock area.
