Body Dysmorphism: Mental health condition in which patients become obsessed with flaws in their appearance

Body dysmorphia is a mental illness in which a person is obsessively concerned about flaws in their physical appearance.

Sufferers develop compulsive behaviors and routines, such as overusing mirrors or completely avoiding them.

These obsessions and behaviors cause emotional stress and have a significant impact on people’s ability to go about their daily lives.

In this way, the condition is closely related to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

BDD can vary in severity from person to person and from day to day.

For some people, concerns about their appearance can make it difficult for them to go out in public or see other people.

For others, they have to uphold what they see as a perfect look.

BDD can also cause other problems, such as shame, guilt, and loneliness.

People with the condition may self-isolate to avoid situations where their appearance may cause them anxiety or awkwardness.
