What is body dysmorphic disorder (BDD)?

Informationen är endast på engelska då behandlingen genomförs på engelska. Alla är välkomna att söka!

Body dysmorphic disorder, or BDD, involves a debilitating preoccupation or worry about small defects in one’s personal appearance. This concern is followed by behaviors such as repeatedly checking one’s appearance (e.g. in mirrors) and camouflaging or altering perceived defects.

People with BDD tend to avoid certain situations due to appearance apprehension, and often pursue unnecessary cosmetic treatments. BDD affects both men and women, and leads to impairment socially, at one’s job, or in other areas of life.
