Banana rolls are one of the lesser known affectionate terms that are used to describe an area of excess fat. Most people are familiar with conditions such as: ‘love handles’, ‘saddle bags’, ‘laughter lines’ and ‘crow’s feet’ and however cute these nicknames may be, they can still cause the affected person a certain amount of frustration.
Banana rolls are the crescent shaped roll of fat that appears just beneath the buttocks and join with other bodily concerns to get people feeling unhappy at their appearance.
Having a large bottom is not always the reason for developing banana rolls as excess fat is not always the cause of this condition, and it’s more about the way in which body fat is individually distributed. Genetics will often determine the shape of the body and the distribution of natural fat cells. These fat cells can sometimes accumulate in areas where they are not wanted, expanding and shrinking as weight goes up or down. Whether a person is overweight or at their ideal, banana rolls are the result of more fat cells residing in this area of the body. Banana rolls can often fall into the category of stubborn fat as many people find them difficult to get rid of, despite the efforts of healthy eating and regular exercise.
Light Touch Clinic has a range of great solutions designed to re-contour the body and produce a more desirable body shape. Reducing stubborn unwanted fatty deposits, such as banana rolls, can be achieved with Coolsculpting - a treatment that uses controlled cooling to destroy and remove fat cells from the body, permanently. In cases where excess fat removal then leaves behind loose skin, Exilix Elite contouring can help to stimulate collagen fibres and tighten the skin. A recommended course of treatments can help to create a firmer, smoother look to the behind.
