Buffalo hump removal

A hump of fat that develops between the shoulders at the back of the neck is often referred to as a buffalo hump. A buffalo hump is not normally a serious condition, but it is important to assess its cause before determing a course of treatment.

Cosmetic surgery can remove the fat deposit. However, if the underlying cause is not identified and treated, the deposit may reform.

If you are bothered by a buffalo hump, contact Novant Health Coastal Plastic Surgery. We will work with you and any other physicians you are seeing to determine the cause of your buffalo hump and to see if you are a candidate for surgery to remove it.
