While you may have already heard of the ‘love handle’ or the ‘muffin top’, the lesser known ‘banana roll’ is now taking over and appearing on ageing bottoms all over the country.
The term ‘banana roll’ refers to the banana-shaped arc under the buttock which can give the illusion of a distinctly sagging bottom. Despite its cutesy name, banana rolls are actually quite the source of embarrassment for many men and women - that’s where we come in.
Eliminating banana rolls can be tricky but it certainly isn’t impossible. From skin tightening to fat removal, there are many routes to the tighter, firmer bottom you’ve been hoping for. After all, no one wants to condemn their favourite undies to a lifetime stuffed at the back of the underwear drawer. They’ve got years left in them yet.
But first things first…
What Are They & Where Have They Come From?
Simply put, Banana Rolls are crescent-shaped strips of fat that accumulate underneath the buttocks. The term may also refer to the secondary fold of skin that begins to form below the buttock crease.
Carrying a little extra weight can increase your likelihood of developing banana rolls, however, as we tend to deposit fat according to genetic tendencies, weight is not the sole cause. As we begin to age and our skin starts to lose its natural elasticity, banana rolls can become more and more prominent - accentuating any visible cellulite and making us reach for a longer-lined knicker every time. So, what can be done?
Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin - and unwanted fat can be distressing no matter where it is. Having said this, many find that they are all too aware of this particular complaint due to its intimate location.
To make matters worse, banana rolls also have a tendency to form asymmetrically. This means that many find that they have more severe skin creasing and/or fatty deposits on the one side - making the whole complaint that much more pronounced.
Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin - banana roll or no banana roll. That’s why we’ve curated a long list of treatments geared specifically at fighting back at the banana roll. Let’s take a little look at some of them, shall we…?
With a wealth of treatments, designed just for you...
Here at The Harley Street Skin Clinic, we take on the deplored banana roll in one of 2 ways: by removing the fat in question or by tightening the skin surrounding it. The method used will often depend on your symptoms and the particular case that you present, although sometimes may call for a careful combination of the two.
Fat removal methods such as Onda and BodyTite, for example, concentrate on extracting volume and are perfect for those that find their banana rolls appear lumpy and/or risen. Both treatments work wonders on recontouring and smoothing areas where fat has gathered, while BodyTite has the added benefit of also firming the skin as it goes.
Alternatively, those that find their banana rolls are a result of loose skin may see better results from some radiofrequency-assisted skin tightening - Fractora Forma for example, which aims to give the area an influx of super-firming collagen and elastin proteins. Some even consider augmenting the shape somewhat with Buttock Augmentation - a highly durable filler designed specifically for the buttocks. To look at all of your options for banishing the banana rolls, why not explore some of our treatments in a little more detail…?
