There are a variety of treatment options that can help to eliminate banana rolls. Non-surgical options like Accent Prime focus on tightening the area with radiofrequency. In contrast, a buttock fat transfer would be a surgical option suitable for those who still have good elasticity of the skin, but have a little fat resting under the buttock cheek creases.
A buttock fat transfer would be best for those who wish to remove the banana rolls and may also be looking to enhance the overall shape and size of the buttocks. Firstly, the surgeon may remove the fat with liposuction with careful precision to ensure that loose skin doesn’t contribute to the appearance. Secondly, the fat can be re-injected into the surrounding area of the thighs and buttocks to smooth out the ‘double buttock crease’ appearance and act as a support for the buttocks.
Vaser Liposuction can be a very effective, yet less invasive method of removing banana rolls. You can expect considerably less downtime and little to no scarring. The ultrasound technology breaks down and eliminates the fat and promotes collagen production, while the surrounding areas of tissue are left intact. The area can be precisely targeted to create a contoured appearance and can also be used in other areas to achieve a defined and toned look. The surgeon must assess whether you’re a suitable candidate for this technique as the removal of too much fat may cause the skin to collapse under the weight of the buttock.
With all banana roll removal methods, we would be likely to recommend a course of Accent Skin Tightening treatments. The radiofrequency will firm the skin and help to recontour and smooth the thighs and buttocks. Combining this treatment with Endermologie will encourage a lymphatic drainage effect and may improve the overall tonicity of the skin for optimal results. We often advise patients to have Endermologie as part of their post-surgery programme to encourage tissue healing and repair.
