In brief: Therapy & practice

If you are preoccupied with a defect in your appearance (imagined or slight), and this causes impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning, you can get past it with psychotherapy (cognitive-behavioral therapy).
Please call a psychologist or psychiatrist to make an appointment. Practicing new ways of thinking will help you to stop upsetting yourself.
