Support: Tough but hang in there . Body dysmorphic disorder is an illness and require treatment. This is tough as you do not want your loved one to go to doctors and get unnecessary surgeries. I think that a professional will also have to be involved cannot go this alone. Needs therapy and medications possibly.
