HARTFORD, CT (CBS Connecticut) – There is a new trend going around in which women are getting plastic surgery on their hands in order to have better engagement pictures.

According to WFSB, some older women want to have younger looking hands to complement that diamond engagement ring.

In this age of social media, when women get engaged now they take a picture of the ring on their hand and post it online to show everyone they know; and one giveaway of aging is in the hands.

“We can use the filler materials to either camouflage the visible tendons or veins in the hands,” Dr. John Borkowski, a plastic surgeon, told the station. Doctors can now make hands appear more youthful.

Borkowski said this procedure takes no more than a half-hour and can last for a few months. He said there is another, more permanent option in which doctors can surgically use fat grafting to create a long-lasting look.
