BUFFALO HUMP

GIVE IT THE HUMP

WHAT IS A BUFFALO HUMP?

A large lipoma / accumulation of fatty deposits on the top of the shoulders / behind the neck in the dorsocervical fat pad is referred to as a 'BUFFALO HUMP'.

A BUFFALO HUMP is sometimes referred to as 'fat back', 'fat base of neck', or 'humped back'.

 

A lipoma is a benign mass made up of fatty tissue. They are harmless and do not require any treatment: however many people wish to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.  

WHAT CAUSES A BUFFALO HUMP?

A buffalo hump can be cause by a variety of reasons, such as:

- A side effect of medication (especially those used to treat obesity)

- Cushings Syndrome (this is a rare condition when the body has too much cortisol)

- Long term steroid use, such as prednisolone, hydrocortisone, and cortisone

- Certain genetic disorders that cause unusual fat accumulation

- Madelung disease (multiple symmetrical lipomatosis) often associated with excessive alcohol consumption

Sometimes, the appearance of a 'buffalo hump' is not a lipoma, but a tumour, a cyst, or curvature of the spine. Osteoporosis may cause a curvature of the spine in the neck called kyphoscoliosis which causes an abnormal shape, but does not by itself cause excessive fat in the back of the neck.

HOW CAN A BUFFALO HUMP BE TREATED?

Surgical removal or liposuction are both suitable options, although both these procedures can be very expensive.

DESOBODY is a quick, simple and safe treatment for a buffalo hump. DESOBODY is injected into the area, permanently destroying the fat cells and thus removing the buffalo hump.
