What is Buffalo Hump Removal?

Buffalo Hump Removal is a cosmetic procedure designed to eliminate the accumulation of excess fat between the shoulder blades, just below the neck, often referred to as a “buffalo hump” or “dorsocervical fat pad.” This condition can be caused by various factors including genetics, poor posture, weight gain, certain medications, and conditions like Cushing’s syndrome.
While not harmful, the buffalo hump can be aesthetically displeasing and difficult to address through diet and exercise alone. Buffalo Hump Removal provides a quick and effective solution to this problem.

Reasons to Have Buffalo Hump Removal

Several factors can contribute to the development of a buffalo hump, including:
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Poor posture, such as hunching over devices or leaning forward at a desk
  • Weight gain
  • Side effects of certain medications
  • Hormonal disorders like Cushing’s syndrome
Although the buffalo hump itself does not pose a health risk, many individuals seek removal due to the cosmetic impact and the difficulty of losing this fat through traditional weight loss methods.

Benefits of Buffalo Hump Removal

Buffalo Hump Removal offers multiple benefits:
  • Permanent reduction of excess fat in the neck area
  • Enhanced aesthetic appearance of the neck and upper back
  • Improved neck and head mobility
  • Relief from discomfort and potential headaches caused by the buffalo hump
  • Correction of posture-related issues

What Buffalo Hump Removal Involves

Consultation and Preparation:

  • Initial consultation with a plastic surgeon to assess the buffalo hump and determine the suitability of liposuction.
  • Anesthesia consultation if general anesthesia or sedation is required.
  • Necessary hormonal and preoperative blood tests.


  • The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, though sedation or general anesthesia can be used.
  • Small incisions are made in the treatment area to remove the excess fat via liposuction.
  • The area is dressed post-surgery, and a compression garment may be recommended to reduce swelling and support healing.


  • Expect some swelling and bruising, which are normal post-procedure.
  • Wearing a compression garment will help minimize swelling and speed up recovery.
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity and exercise for the first 2-3 weeks.
  • Recovery time is usually 2 to 3 days, but full recovery may require 4 to 6 weeks of avoiding strenuous activities.
