Body Dysmorphia

Body Dysmorphia

Body Dysmorphia (or BDD, Body Dysmoprhic Disorder) is an anxiety disorder related to body image, often characterized by obsessive and disproportionate negative thoughts about one’s appearance and/or weight.

Individuals with BDD often develop a series of compulsive behaviors and routines (see also: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) in response to these constant thoughts/worries, which can further manifest themselves in the development of depression, anxiety, and eating disorders, etc.
