Many people feel unhappy or insecure about their physical appearance at some point in their lives. However, individuals can become obsessed with the way that they look and worry excessively about small, or imagined, flaws in their appearance leading to a little-known illness called Body Dysmorphia.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is estimated to affect one in 50 people and is a disabling preoccupation with perceived defects.
