What is Body Dysmorphic Disorder

BDD or Body Dysmorphic disorder is a psycological condition of people, when a person tends to over-react about some aspect of their physical appearance or behave in over-obsessive way having exaggerated concerns about their looks, it is called to be a major symptom of BDD. These concerns (which may be impractical or unrealistic) lead them to have one or more cosmetic surgery on a much frequent basis or they seek revisional surgeries to achieve the desired result that may be unachievable. Though there are no standard tools that can be helpful in screening BBD. The problem is often diagnosed by the plastic surgeon after the surgery is done when the fact comes out that the patient is not satisfied with results which may be happily accepted by other normal patients. The patients suffering from BDD may return to the same plastic surgeon to achieve their goal and if not treated, they try to find other options to get the desired fulfilled by searching another surgeon.
