Excess fat around the hips is often referred to as 'love handles'. These excess pockets of fat can affect the overall contour of the body, usually affecting both sides. Your body's shape and size is largely determined by your genes, which affect how your body fat is distributed as you age. Lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise can help to reduce the appearance of 'love handles', but often stubborn fat can remain in place.
Women are more likely to be affected by excess fat around the hips, although this can still be an issue for men. Love handles usually come as a result of weight gain, where fewer calories are burnt off than are taken in by food or drink. Other factors, such as hormonal changes, ageing, lack of exercise and over-consumption of fatty and surgery foods and drinks can increase the likelihood of developing love handles. There are also some medical conditions (i.e. under active thyroid) which can affect your metabolism and hence increase the difficulty with which you burn off extra calories.
