Understanding Body Dysmorphia
Body Dysmorphia is distorted perception of one’s body image resulting low self-esteem, avoidance of certain social situations, and interfering in other aspects of life.
Body dysmorphia is characterized by severe distortion of one’s body image that others may see as minor or not observed at all. This may result in low self-esteem and self-worth leading individuals to avoid social situations causing isolation and interference in everyday life. Body dysmorphia may cause some to develop disordered eating and/or exercise habits to achieve an unrealistic body. Many individuals with anorexia and bulimia have body dysmorphia; however, this is often viewed on a spectrum of severity. Some individuals with severe body dysmorphia may seek professional help such as plastic surgery to “fix” his or her undesired body feature. These individuals often go against medical advice and seek help elsewhere, which may cause long-lasting health consequences.
