    Bdd is a body image problem. It is defined as a preoccupation with one or more perceived defects in one's appearance which other people can hardly notice or do not believe to be important. Bdd obsessions may manifest as excessive, disproportionate concerns about a minor flaw, or anxiety-provoking thoughts about an entirely imagined defect.
    Bdd goes beyond normal concern with one's appearance, and may significantly impair academic and professional functioning, as well as interpersonal relationships.


    *engaging in repetitive and time-consuming behaviors, such as looking in a mirror, picking at the skin, and trying to hide or cover up the perceived defect.

    * strong belief that you have a defect in your appearance that makes you ugly or deformed.

    *belief that others take special notice of your appearance in a negative way.

    *attempting to hide perceived flaws with styling, makeup or clothes.

    *constantly comparing your appearance with others.

    *seeking frequent cosmetic procedures with little satisfaction.

    *being so preoccupied with appearance that it causes major distress or problems in your social life, work, school or other areas of functioning.

    Depression and anxiety, including suicidal thoughts.

    The exact cause of bdd is not known. One theory suggests the disorder involves a problem with the size or functioning of certain brain areas that process information about body appearance. The fact that bdd often occurs in people with other mental health disorders, such as major depression andanxiety, further supports a biological basis for the disorder.

    Other factors that might influence the development of bdd include:

    1) experience of traumatic events or emotional conflict during childhood
    2) low self-esteem
    3) parents and others who were critical of the person's appearance.
    4) pressure from peers and a society that equates physical appearance can have an impact on the development of bdd.


    Treatment for bdd likely will include a combination of the following therapies:

    @ psychotherapy: this is a type of individual counseling that focuses on changing the thinking (cognitive therapy) and behavior (behavioral therapy) of a person with body dysmorphic disorder. The goal is to correct the false belief about the defect and to minimize the compulsive behaviour.

    @ medication: certain antidepressant medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris) are showing promise in treating body dysmorphic disorder, as are antipsychotic medicines such as olanzapine, aripiprazole, orpimozide (either alone or in combination with an ssri). No drug is formally fda-approved for the treatment of bdd.
    @ group or family therapy: family support is very important to treatment success. It is important that family members understand body dysmorphic disorder and learn to recognize its signs and symptoms.
