Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is recognized as a body-image disorder. Typically, people with this disorder become preoccupied with perceived flaws and defects in their appearance. Whether these so-called flaws are even noticed by other people is irrelevant. When you have BDD, your preoccupation with your appearance occurs for hours each day — maybe even all day — disrupting your daily functioning and leading to intense distress.
