When Christa Hendershot got engaged last fall, she, like thousands of other women, wanted to show off her engagement ring on social media. But after snapping a few photos, she realized she didn’t like the way her hands looked.
So the 33-year-old from Mount Sinai, New York, turned to plastic surgery, hoping it would smooth out her hands in order for them to become more “selfie worthy.” She recently shelled out more than $3,000 for hand rejuvenation at her plastic surgeon Dr. Ariel Ostad’s office in New York.
Hendershot told Ostad she was unhappy with her hands because she thought they were veiny and her knuckles were “very red.”
Within minutes of the procedure, Hendershot was happier about the appearance of her hands. “The veins are not as blue,” she said.
