Buffalo Hump From Obesity

Hi all. I have this posted in back pain too, but this might be the more appropriate forum.

I have what is commonly called a "buffalo hump." i've had it for years. An ugly hunch on my neck/upper back. I've begun researching the disorder and I think mine is caused from my obesity. I'm about 65 pounds overweight.

My question is, has anyone had a similiar experience? When the weight is lost will the hump go away?

Thanks all!
