What is a banana roll?
A banana roll is the section of fat that appears under the buttocks, at the top of the thigh. It can be very difficult to minimize this pocket of fat with diet and exercise alone due its location.
Getting rid of fat below the buttocks
Surgeons often choose liposuction to remove the fatty area at the top of the thigh, however, there is a non-surgical treatment that may be just as effective. By using Kybella, we can target fat cells that we want to dissolve strategically in the office instead of using a surgical procedure.
Who is a candidate for Kybella?
If you struggle with getting rid of that small pocket of unwanted fat beneath your buttocks, a Kybella injection might be for you. Since this area is difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise alone, many patients turn to the injectable to get rid of this stubborn fatty deposit. The ideal candidate has a small pocket of fat that does not go away with diet and exercise. Kybella is most effective when used on small to medium fatty deposits.
What to expect post-op
Results from Kybella in the banana roll location are permanent. Once you get the look you want, you won’t have to maintain it with further injections. Icing the area immediately after the treatment can help to reduce the side effects. It’s suggested that patients don’t participate in intense exercise for at least two days after they receive treatment.
Side effects may include:
- Temporary numbness at injection site
