Get help: Psychological evaluation can determine if you have this condition. Body dysmorphic disorder is a mental health disorder in which one becomes extremely focused on perceived body/ facial defects that don't actually exist. It can damage self esteem and quality of life. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a good choice for treatment.
