Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)

Individuals with BDD spend an inordinate amount of time obsessing about (perceived or actual) flaws in their appearance. These flaws are often unnoticeable to others. While it can occur at any age it is most common in adolescents and young adults. BDD is not about being vain, it is very distressing and can have a big impact on your life. Symptoms can include:

  • Focusing on a specific area of your face/body (e.g chin or nose)
  • Creating comparisons between yourself and others (profiles)
  • Compulsive checking in mirrors, glass in shops, with hands or complete avoidance
  • Increased efforts to conceal flaws – e.g., make up.
  • Frequent cosmetic procedures
