What is Body Dysmorphic Disorder?

Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a preoccupation with aspects of your appearance that are not noticeable to others, making you feel that you are ugly or very unattractive. About 10 percent of people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) also have BDD. People with BDD usually perform time-consuming rituals such as mirror-checking and may resort to needless cosmetic surgery.
