Buffalo Hump Removal
May 18, 2006

After 3 or 4 years of hating my hump and reading about therapies - I am traveling a fair distance to have it removed by liposuction. I hate my hump - I'm tired of whining about it - and so I'm getting off my lazy butt and doing something (anything) about it. What will happen after? Swelling? Bruising? Pain?

Response from Dr. Henry

There generally is some bruising and swelling with usually minimal pain in my experience. The hump can recur but often can get years of benefit from the surgical intervention. KH
