Body Dysmorphic Disorder
Fast and effective help for BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) in Fareham, Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester and Chichester
The symptoms of Body Dysmorphic Disorder, (BDD) appear similar to those associated with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
If you have BDD, you may become preoccupied with thoughts of a physical defect in your appearance or have an exaggerated concern about a small defect of some kind. This preoccupation can cause a real problem in your life. Thinking about this defect can occupy your thoughts for an hour a day or more.
Often the obsessive thoughts are concerned with your facial features or your hair but can be about any part of your body. The disorder often begins in adolescence and as it becomes worse, can lead to a great deal of internal suffering.
You may become extremely anxious in social situations, consult plastic surgeons and undergo painful or risky operations to try to change the defect that is concerning you so much. These medical procedures rarely give the relief from the symptoms you expect. Indeed, they can often make the symptoms worse.
BDD may cause problems in your relationships or make it difficult to concentrate on every day matters.
