dorsocervical fat pad, more commonly known as “buffalo hump”, can be caused by medical conditions and certain medications, or it may just be an area of abnormal fat contours.
When the buffalo hump is caused by abnormal fat deposits, liposuction is a good option. Typically, this is not the sort of body contour change that can be accomplished through weight loss, special diets, or exercises. But by suctioning out the fat cells in the area, liposuction can help remove the fat that’s causing the issue, for a natural and long-lasting result.
If you think you might be suffering from buffalo hump, we warmly welcome you to our offices for a private (and free) one-on-one consultation with one of our cosmetic physicians to determine the cause and best treatment options.
