In brief: Body dysmorphic

Disorder is something your doc can diagnose.
It is typically expressed in extreme displeasure w/an aspect of the physical body that is ok or slightly disproportionate. Some people go to extremes with surgery and suffer greatly over this. It is an obsessive disorder and treatable by a mental health professional. Loving what you have is something a professional can help you to do.
