Dear Arthi
Some people have a genetic ( hereditary ) concentration of fat on the hips - if you have dieted and exercised and lost weight all over except your hips, and you weigh the normal weight for someone of your age and length, getting something like liposuction may be the solution - although one should not take this decision lightly - liposuction is not without dangers
