Body Dysmorphic disorder (shorty termed as BDD) is a growing disorder, where individuals not only dislike the aspect of how they look, they are severely preoccupied with their appearance. When people with BDD see themselves in the mirror they see a different image of them self then other outsiders perceive them. BDD is sometimes to referred to as "imagined ugliness." In many cases with individuals with BDD literally the image of them in the mirror appears to be completely different from what he or she sees in their mind. These individuals are usually obsessed with looking in the mirror to constantly find flaws with them self. Sometimes these flaws that these individuals see are not even there and only exist in the individuals mind, or little imperfections that these individuals may have are blown out of proportion and perceived as severe abnormalities.
The person may fear ridicule in social situations, and may consult many dermatologist or plastic surgeons and undergo painful or risky procedures to try to change the perceived defect that they make-up in their mind. Unfortunately individuals with BDD become so fixated with the appearance that they perceive they may go through many cosmetic surgeries to fix the flaws. When all else fails many individuals with BDD result in suicide, due to the depression that frequently accompanies BDD.
