In brief: Ask your doctor
It's best to run this by a professional who will evaluate whether the person is preoccupied with an imagined defect in appearance.
The person might actually have a slight anomaly but the concern shown about it is way too excessive. In addition, people with this disorder are quite distressed by their preoccupation, or they have big impairments in functioning because of it.
