Brides-To-Be Seeking 'Hand Lift' Surgery To Perfect The Engagement Ring Selfie

Turns out it's not all about the ring when snapping, and then posting, the perfect engagement ring selfie on Instagram...

Got a brand new mani? That's just not good enough. Brides-to-be are now seeking plastic surgery to make sure their hands are in tip top condition before they announce their engagement via photographic social media. True story.

Even if they're sporting a massive vintage rock on their ring finger, who cares if the ring-wearer's hands are veiny and stuff.

If you want to rack up those likes on Instagram when he pops the question it's about time you checked yourself in for a "hand lift".

Using an injectable anti-ageing treatment called Juvederm - which is pumped under the skin to fill in lines and wrinkles, normally in the face - doctors are able to turn ageing hands with visible tendons and veins into plumper, more youthful mitts, just in time to show off your flawless rock to all your friends.

So, if you're willing to sink $1,200 on one procedure then this could be the answer to all the woes you never knew you had about your hands until now.

New York-based dermatologist Dr Ariel Ostad - who gave a live demonstration of the procedure on PIX 11 - said: "What we're doing today is basically using a filler called Juvederm and it lasts nine months.

His on-camera patient, soon-to-be wed New Yorker named Alexandra Berry, explained why she wanted the procedure.

"I always thought my hands were a little boyish growing up so I figured why not," she said. "Engagement pictures are just around the corner and there's no better time."
