Buffalo Hump Removal

A Buffalo Hump is an accumulation of fatty deposits on the top of the shoulders or behind the neck in the dorsocervical fat pad. If you have a bulge that you don't like the look of and want to get removed, buffalo hump surgery is an option. In our clinic we only offer liposuction to the area as the treatment for buffalo hump.

About Buffalo Hump Removal

The region of extra fat between the shoulder blades beneath the neck, often known as the “buffalo hump” or “dorsocervical fat pad,” is frequently removed by liposuction. You can look older than you actually are if you have this hump.

There are several reasons for this, including: 

  • Genetics
  • Bad posture includes hunching over to look at your phone while leaning forward at your workstation in front of the computer.
  • Gaining weight
  • Medications
  • Cushing’s syndrome

Buffalo humps are not harmful to the rest of the body, although some people may find them aesthetically unsightly. After all, it can be a body part that stands out a lot. Additionally, it is a region where weight loss with diet and exercise is challenging. Fortunately, buffalo hump reduction is the only and quickest solution.


At Signature Clinic, we use local anaesthesia for Liposuction. You will be awake during the whole surgery after a diluted local anaesthetic is injected into the treatment region and therefore will not feel any pain or discomfort. The surgeon will use small incisions to remove the extra fat from the area. When the surgery is finished, the area will be covered with a dressing. You may need to wear a compression garment right after the surgery.


Following this treatment, there may be some swelling and bruising, which is typical. You will be using a compression garment to speed up the healing and reduce swelling. It is important to avoid any gym and exercise for the first 2-3 weeks.
