"Buffalo Hump" is an unusual and terrible disfigurement condition consisting of a large accumulation of fat behind the neck and shoulders. It's caused by a number of situations including certain medications for HIV, the use of steroids, morbid obesity, and a variety of diseases.
It's an embarrassing condition with the formal name lipodystrophy. These very dense fats create unsightly and disfiguring deposits. This problem makes it difficult to move the body in the afflicted area, as in turning the head and neck. Dr. Greg Mueller is one of a very few doctors in this country who treats these patients.
Dr. Mueller's technique of choice to help "buffalo humps" patients is VASER?, the versatile liposuction technology that's growing rapidly as the technology of choice in the plastic surgery world. VASER uses gentle ultrasound to break up fat in the body that is then whisked away out of the body using suction. VASER's precision characteristics allow a physician to zero in precisely on fat deposits of all kinds, including stubborn fibrous fat. It's gaining world-wide popularity for sculpting and contouring, and it's those very traits that have enabled Dr. Mueller to successfully adapt VASER for the purposes of removing these deforming humps.
Dr. Mueller has a full plastic surgery practice in Beverly Hills, California.
