With the incessant rise of Instagram (and the never-dying Facebook) we’re all culprits of obnoxiously publicizing all of our most "important" moments in life, even those that should remain private.
I’m not talking about over-sharing what your face looks like #aftersex. I’m talking about posting picture after picture of your overrated/underrated engagement ring. I don’t see the need. But apparently I’m part of the minority because today women are getting “hand-lifts” (AKA plastic surgery on their hands) to make their engagement ring hand selfies more pleasant.
The procedure isn’t anything new. It’s basically Botox for your hands that removes funky veins. But dermatologist Dr. Ostad told Elle Magazine that the sales of hand-lifts have gone up 40 percent since the ‘rise of social media’.
The procedure only takes 10 minutes and lasts 9 months, but costs roughly $1,500. So before your main man spends who knows what on that ring, ask him to set aside a couple thousand for that hand-lift.
