Buffalo Hump Liposuction vs Less Invasive Options in Seattle
The buildup of excess fat on the back of your neck, right above the shoulders, is referred to as a buffalo hump.
Having this mound on your back isn't something most are happy with having. That could even explain why your closet is now full of turtle necks and collared shirts.
Unfortunately, the buffalo hump can appear for various reasons.
One of these reasons is age. As we become older, our metabolism begins to slow down, causing us to develop fat deposits in areas where they weren't shared before.
For most people, that appears on the abdomen, legs, and buttocks, and for some, it can develop in less familiar areas.
The fat that develops in the dorsocervical fat pad, or a buffalo hump, sits on the back of your neck.
Other conditions for developing buffalo fat are the following:
- Poor posture that results in an accumulation of fat
- An excess of the cortisol hormone
- HIV medications
- Tumor or pituitary dysfunctions
- Glandular problems.'
Some become interested in buffalo hump cosmetic procedures because the accumulation of fat in this area can affect their mobility and even impair the ability to walk.
Should I Get Buffalo Hump Liposuction?
Many would believe that getting liposuction is an optimal alternative to removing the buffalo hump when experimenting with diet and exercise hasn't given them many results.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that involves a surgeon making an incision on areas of the overlying skin and soft tissues, then insert a cannula to suction the excess fat from the hump.
While liposuction is a prevalent cosmetic procedure, it isn't optimal for many reasons. For one, results take months to fully show up, plus you'd have to commit to an extensive recovery routine.
Also, liposuction is prone to risks such as infection, bleeding, and asymmetry, causing you to have to invest more money into changing your appearance afterward.
