I would like to give more fullness to my front-facing figure by means of hip augmentation or by creating an illusion of a smaller waist with love handle augmentation. I have an athletic frame but have very little definition to my waist. I don't have enough fat for a BBL. Are hip implants possible or valid? If not, what are my options?
Do Hip Implants or Augmentation Exist?

Hip implants not recommended
I have found the best way to enhance flattened hips is to use fat. Often times overzealous liposuction can give a masculine figure to women. This is nicely corrected with a combination of fat injection into the outer hips and liposuctioning of the waist to create a more hourglass figure. If you do not have enough fat then using a wide diameter gluteal implant can also do the trick. Best wishes.
How do you augment the hips?
Hips often need augmentation either as an isolated area, or more commonly along with the buttocks. Fat transplantation is the preferred is the preferred method for achieving this because it can be appropriately molded to achieve proper curvature. Hip augmentation enahances the appearance of the buttocks and fat is a great source for enhancement.
