Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and The Importance of Honest Practioners

We all know October is "spooky season", so let's talk about a scary new trend in cosmetic medicine. Overfilled cheeks and unnaturally flattened Russian lips has some people trolling around town looking like "Beautiful Monsters", instead of an enhanced version of themselves. Industry experts call this "cosmetic alienation". There's no denying the world of cosmetic medicine has seen dramatic changes over the past decade.

Bella Hadid is a well-known model who's face can be viewed with the golden ratio as the perfectly aesthetic beauty for women. The stigma that having work done can create a disproportionate and inhuman appearance has been brought on by in-genuine practices that prey on those with BDB. She is the perfect example (her actual appearance on the right) that cosmetic work can truly enhance your natural beauty.

As practitioners, it's important to call out dishonest practices that prey on patients with image disorders. Body Dysmorphic Disorder (DBD) is a psychiatric disorder that can creep into any patient population. Not appropriately addressing BDB during a client consultation can lead to long lasting physical and psychological damage.
