Contents: Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is defined as a preoccupation with a perceived defect in one’s appearance, which is not noticeable to others. The preoccupation is associated with a distorted felt body image with many “safety seeking” behaviours such as mirror gazing, skin-picking, ruminating or constant comparing of one’s perceived defect to others. People with BDD often use strategies to camouflage and avoid situations and activities. They may have a poor quality of life, are socially isolated and people with BDD are at high risk of committing suicide. Cognitive behaviour therapy and SSRI medications are recommended for treating BDD.
