BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER 

Symptoms and Causes

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a body image disorder. Individuals with BDD persistently believe they have significant flaws or defects in their physical appearance.  These perceived flaws are often minor or not visible to others.  Individuals with BDD may engage in repetitive behaviors such as excessive grooming, mirror-checking, and comparing their body size or appearance to others, including celebrities or supermodels. This preoccupation often leads to emotional distress and significant impairment in social or occupational settings. BDD is often associated with other conditions, including low self-esteem, anxiety/social anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Some individuals may even look towards cosmetic surgery to correct their perceived flaws.

Empirically based treatments for BDD include a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and medications. We are here to help with both.
