What Is Body Dysmorphic Disorder?
Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) causes people to believe that parts of their body look ugly, or they are gorgons. People with BDD spend hours focused on what they think is wrong with their looks. Many times a day, they do things to check, fix, cover up, or ask others about their looks. They focus on flaws that seem minor to others.

These people have a false image of their looks. People with BDD don’t see their body as it really is, or as others see it. The flaws they focus on are things that others can hardly notice. They feel sure they look ugly, even though it’s not true.
