Buffalo Hump Exercise
Nov 16, 2003

This is a question to Dr. Vergel, I've developed a buffalo hump, which according to my Dr. isn"t large; but then again it's not on his back. Are there any exercises or weight programs that can at least lessen the look of the hump, or disguise it?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Unfortunately, there are none that I know of. Ultrasound liposuction is effective is some people. Switching to a non protease combo may help (not proven). Some people have also seen good results (anecdotally) with the use of testosterone gel applied to the hump.

Is a cleansing fast okay?
Which type of testosterone is most effective?
