A pear-shaped body is a sign of pronounced hips. This indicates that they are larger than your shoulders. Combined with excess fat around the buttocks and thighs, the body takes the form of a violin. It is indeed described as 'violin hips' or 'hip dips.' These two phenomena may be frustrating and can cause all sorts of insecurities.
For this reason, there are several remedies to make prominent hips disappear.
Why do women have hips that are too large?
Wide hips are often mistaken with love handles. While love handles are fatty tissue susceptible to settle on the hips, the hips themselves are the ligament that attach your pelvis to your thighs. This is the part where the love handles sit on. Sometimes, to get rid of your love handles, what you must do is lose weight around your hips. This solution allows you to create a shapely silhouette.
Overly prominent hips can be caused by poor diet or lack of physical exercise. As a consequence, excess body fat builds up on the hips, buttocks and thighs, especially for women. This fatty tissue on the thighs can also have genetic reasons. Women are typically more genetically predisposed to storing fat, especially as a result of pregnancy or breast-feeding.
However, if your hips are too prominent, you might find it hard to find clothes that suit you. You may find, for example, that wearing low-waisted trousers or figure-hugging clothing makes you feel uncomfortable.
Prominent hips: How to slim them down?
There are a lot of options designed to help you slim down your hips. Your doctor may point you to one approach over another based on your body shape and expectations. If you have an excess of fat on your hips and also on your stomach, sides, love handles, etc., we suggest getting liposuction to remove a large amount of body fat in one sitting.
If you have more limited excess fat localized only on your hips, soft liposuction or Coolsculpting can work for you, providing results that are just as good as conventional surgery. If you are slim but store fat on your hips, the doctor might recommend the Accent Prime method that comprises ultrasound and radio frequency, or the ONDA Coolwaves system that emits microwaves.
