What is the buffalo hump?

The buffalo hump is a proliferation of fatty tissue reminiscent of the buffalo hump, an animal characterized by a voluminous fatty mass located in the upper part of the back, between its shoulders. The hump is manifested by an increase in the curvature of the dorsal spine, precisely at the level of the last cervical vertebrae. The hump, presented as a fatty mass with a firm appearance (lipodystrophy),usually occurs in adulthood without gender predilection and can cause pain related to hormonal disorders affecting the adrenal gland. According to studies, this fatty mass can manifest itself progressively and largely in women in menopause, which requires surgical treatment.

Difference between buffalo hump and kyphosis

It should be noted that a buffalo hump is not the same as a spinal deformity. The latter refers to a deviation of the curvature of the spine resulting in what is called kyphosis, which gives a rounded position of the back. This is the result of an inappropriate head posture.

Causes of buffalo hump

Buffalo hump can occur due to an imbalance of hormones such as cortisol and glucocorticoid. An elevated level of these hormones is the result of medications classified as steroids prescribed for inflammatory diseases or excessive secretion of them by the adrenal gland (Cushing's syndrome).The appearance of a lipoma can also be due to being overweight where fat accumulates to form a cluster in the upper part of the spine.

In rarer cases, buffalo hump is found in people with weakened bones and vertebrae due to a hereditary disease called osteoporosis. 

Several habits can be at the origin of this disease like bad posture based on the projection of the neck towards the front.

How to get rid of the lump behind the neck?

The proposed treatment to eliminate buffalo hump is liposuction. By aspirating the fatty tissue, this surgical operation allows the affected area to be treated and reshaped permanently. Before proceeding with the procedure, the patient must undergo a series of blood and hormonal tests and consult with the anesthesiologist to prevent any possible complications during and after the operation.

Post-operative treatment

Recovery time from buffalo hump surgery is estimated at 2 days on average. It is strongly recommended to avoid any physical effort during the first 4 weeks after the operation.

Generally, the patient will experience some bruising and swelling with moderate pain. The result of the buffalo hump liposuction is visible after about 15 days.
