Many women develop banana fat rolls at the bottom of their butt, which they find difficult to eliminate with exercise. Fat reduction surgeries like liposuction and Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) present a highly effective solution for this common insecurity. Below, we’ll discuss how two cosmetic procedures can eliminate banana rolls and contour your butt.
What Are Banana Rolls?
Banana rolls fat refers to the layer of subcutaneous fat that builds up between your lower butt and upper thighs. The fat pockets accumulate into a crescent-like shape, resembling a banana. The presence of banana roll fat can obscure the definition of your buttocks and make it difficult to wear certain types of clothing. As a result, many who want a pert or rounder bottom are keen to get rid of banana rolls to achieve their desired figure.
Why Do I Have Banana Rolls?
Banana rolls are an aesthetic concern commonly seen in women. Below are the most common reasons for developing banana rolls:
Effect of Lifestyle
As banana roll fat is often related to excess weight, leading a sedentary lifestyle with infrequent exercise causes excess fat deposits to accumulate under the gluteal fold. The more subcutaneous fat you have in this area, the more pronounced the banana rolls appear.
Eating an unhealthy diet can lead to weight gain, which leads to fat deposits in these areas. In particular, foods containing saturated fats, carbohydrates, and sugar can cause banana rolls if consumed in high amounts.
Banana rolls usually develop in women, as they are predisposed to fat accumulation in the lower regions of the body. Other genetically determined factors, such as the places where fat accumulates and your metabolism rate, can also contribute to the development of banana rolls.
Hormonal changes can lead to weight gain and the development of banana rolls; another reason banana roll fat is prevalent in women. In particular, hormonal imbalance during pregnancy leads to fat accumulating in the butt, upper thigh, and hip area. Disruptions in hormone levels cause the body to store fat in these areas, making it challenging to get rid of banana rolls.
How to Lose Banana Roll Fat
There are several ways to reduce or even get rid of banana rolls. As discussed below, each method will vary in effectiveness and produce different results.
Exercises that target the gluteal muscles in your butt, such as squats, donkey kicks, and bridge walks, can help you lose fat in the area while building muscle tone, which will help get rid of banana roll fat. Combining strength training exercises with cardiovascular exercises can contract your thigh and gluteal muscles while burning the fat below your butt.
For strength training exercises to work, you need to to maintain a healthy lifestyle and eat a healthy diet high in protein while lowering or eliminating your intake of carbohydrates, sugar, and saturated fats.
Additionally, it’s important to remember that exercise and dietary changes help in eliminating banana rolls by merely shrinking the fat cells in the area. Therefore, reverting to an unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle can cause your banana rolls to reappear. Furthermore, our comparison of squats vs. BBL shows the two methods yield significantly different results.
Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses a method known as cryolipolysis, where the fat cells in an area are frozen and eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system. It works similarly to liposuction surgery by permanently removing the fat in a targeted area. However, our comparison of CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction reveals the latter cosmetic procedure produces superior results and is more likely to eliminate your banana roll fat.
Many other non-surgical cosmetic procedures use various technologies such as electromagnetic, radiofrequency, ultrasound, and laser energy to reduce the appearance of banana rolls. While such cosmetic treatments suit some patients, they do not produce the same contouring effects as liposuction.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic surgery that extracts excess fat deposits through liposuction and injects it (fat transfer) into the butt to reshape and add volume and enhance the shape of the area. You can expect a full recovery within 4-6 weeks and can enjoy the final results following 3-6 months when the fat grafts have stabilised, and any swelling has dissipated.
Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift for Banana Rolls
BBL is an excellent solution for banana roll fat, as the procedure repurposes fat from other areas of the body in order to improve your figure through better contour of the butt, thighs or hips. Compared to exercise or other nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, you can expect more from a BBL – to reduce your banana rolls and simultaneously sculpt the figure in on treatment.
In addition to getting rid of banana rolls, a BBL has numerous other cosmetic benefits:
As a bespoke cosmetic surgery, the surgeon can add fat to specific areas of your butt, thighs, and hips and remove fat from almost all areas of your body to create your desired BBL shape. For instance, a BBL can provide a rounder butt, curvier hips, an hourglass figure, or improve the appearance of hip dips. Additionally, the surgery delivers permanent results and leaves behind minimal scars.
