What is Buffalo Hump?

The term “buffalo hump” refers to the accumulation of excess fat in the region 
of the upper back and neck, creating a noticeable hump-like or rounded appearance in that area. It can be characterized by the prominence of fat deposits in the dorsocervical fat pad, which is located between the shoulders and the base of the neck. Buffalo hump is a cosmetic concern for many individuals as it can affect the overall contour and aesthetics of the upper body.
In some cases, a buffalo hump may be associated with an underlying medical condition. Factors such as genetics, hormonal changes, obesity, poor posture, 
or an underlying medical condition can influence the development of a buffalo hump. Consequently, anyone worried about buffalo humps must seek advice from a healthcare provider to ascertain if there’s an underlying health concern that requires attention. Additionally, some individuals may seek plastic surgery like liposuction to address and reduce the appearance of this excess fat deposit 
and achieve a smoother, more balanced upper back and neck profile.

The Buffalo Hump Liposuction at JustGoLipo

The Buffalo Hump Liposuction is a specialized cosmetic procedure designed 
to remove the excess fat deposit known as a Buffalo Hump, which accumulates at the upper back, near the neck. This condition, often causing discomfort 
and self-consciousness, can be effectively addressed through liposuction, 
a minimally invasive surgical technique.

At JustGoLipo, the Buffalo Hump Removal procedure is tailored to offer 
a patient-friendly experience with minimal downtime, leveraging advanced liposuction techniques for precise fat removal from the upper back area. Here’s how the procedure is enhanced with awake liposuction for a faster recovery:

Patients undergo a thorough consultation with Dr. Singh to evaluate their condition, discuss their goals, and outline the procedure plan, with a particular focus on the suitability of awake liposuction.
Utilizing the awake liposuction approach, which includes tumescent liposuction combined with Pro-Nox for pain management, patients are prepared for the procedure. This preparation is crucial for the next step, where VASER technology is employed.

The liquefied fat resulting from the VASER technique is then carefully extracted through a cannula. This method ensures a more thorough removal of stubborn fat and promotes smoother contours and potentially less bruising and swelling, leading to better aesthetic outcomes.

VASER Liposuction, known for its precision and effectiveness, is introduced as a vital component of the fat removal process. This technology uses ultrasound waves to selectively break down fat cells in the buffalo hump area without damaging surrounding tissues. At JustGoLipo, besides liposuction for buffalo hump, we also offer arm, chin, back, and thigh liposuction using Awake and VASER liposuction.

In addition, it does not harm surrounding body tissues since it is a very gentle and precise procedure. Downtime is only 2-3 days, with minimum bleeding, scars, and bruising, and recovery is faster than with standard liposuction. After the surgery, you will be given a compression garment to help reduce edema and enhance healing and skin retraction.

Recovery After a Buffalo Hump Liposuction

Patients are discharged a few hours after the surgery if they can walk comfortably and their pain is under control, which typically is the case. The healing period after buffalo hump liposuction generally spans 2 to 3 days, varying on the size of the treated area.
However, the patient is encouraged to relax at home and avoid physical effort for 4 to 6 weeks to reduce the chances of any complications 
(in particular, bleeding, increased swelling, and fluid collections). Patients can generally return to office work within a week of surgery. Post-operative pain, bruising, and swelling are usually mild. Post-operative pain is moderate in most cases, and the patients can resume their normal activity the next day.

Who Is a Candidate For Buffalo Hump Liposuction?

While almost every patient who presents with a well-localized fatty deposit in the upper back and neck region can be considered a candidate, whether or not they are suitable for this surgery is based on several parameters that will be discussed during the consultation. It is advisable to lower your BMI to below 30, ideally closer to 25, before undergoing surgery to minimize the likelihood of complications.

A thorough medical examination will be performed during your consultation to better understand your medical history. Some medical issues may necessitate optimization before elective surgery in an out-of-hospital setting. Smoking should be avoided for at least one month before and after surgery to reduce the risk of infection and other healing issues.

Cost of Buffalo Hump Liposuction

The cost range for Buffalo Hump Liposuction typically falls between $2,000 to $5,000 
or more. However, it’s essential to keep in mind that this is a general cost range 
and that the actual cost can vary significantly.
