VASER Liposuction of the Banana Rolls

Banana roll fat is a source of annoyance for some women. Its existence may not even be noticed by others. Recent attention to the buttocks on social media has led to an increase in the amount of “banana rolls lipo” requests at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin.

Banana roll is the term describing a small pocket, or roll, of stubborn fat that sits just beneath the gluteal crease under the buttocks. Weight plays a factor in the size of your banana roll. The heavier the buttock area the more likely to have a bigger banana roll. However, even slimmer women can have this unwanted pocket of fat in this area. Women with larger buttocks benefit from banana roll liposuction. Removal of fat in this area make the buttock area more defined. Once the banana roll is removed it brings about more visible projection from a side profile.
