“This is because people have access to images that reinforce patterns that, in many cases, do not correspond to their physical biotype and are frustrated by not following certain stereotypes.

Those with body dysmorphic disorder feel a physical discomfort in relation to their appearance, which leads them to seek help and solutions in plastic surgery, dermatology, dentistry, among others, to feel better. However, this need to perform a procedure to change their appearance can become an obsession. The tendency is for people to become more and more worried and dissatisfied with their “imperfections”, wanting to perform one surgery after another and, due to sadness, end up harming their performance at work or studies”, warns the doctor.
