BDD – Body Dysmorphic Disorder

This is also known as Dysmorphophobia.  It is usually characterized by a long-term pattern of obsessive ideas of a non-observable or slight defect in own’s appearance.  This flaw actually appears minor or cannot be seen by others.  However, they are convinced that others mock them because of it. These people have a strong belief that these flaws make them deformed and ugly.  Therefore, they think that extreme measures have to be taken to fix it or hide it.  And cosmetic surgery plays a major role as their best ally.

NPD – Narcissistic Personality Disorder

This is usually characterized by a long-term pattern of exaggerated feelings of self-importance.   It can be seen as an excessive or erotic craving for admiration with a lack of empathy.  NPD can also be defined as extreme selfishness with a grandiose view of one’s talents.  Other idea is that of self-centerdness arising from failure to distinguish the self from external objects.  These individuals will do whatever in their power to undergo as many cosmetic procedures as they can in order to fulfill their goal of looking beautiful.

HPD – Histrionic Personality Disorder

HPD is defined as a long-term pattern of excessive emotionality and attention seeking behavior.   These people act very dramatically, as though performing before an audience, showing exaggerated expressions and emotions. However, they lack sincerity.  They constantly seek reassurance and approval, and are easily influenced by others. Individuals suffering of HPD are also overly concerned with physical appearance.  Reason why hair dressing, striking makeup and cosmetic surgery are some of their best allies.

By definition, the goal of cosmetic surgery is to improve a person’s appearance, self-esteem and self-confidence. Cosmetic surgery has proven to have a profound impact and psychological benefits.  Normal social human desires and motivations are clear.  We want to present the very best version of ourselves to the world.  Rememer that the ways we do that, depend on what we are.  So make no mistake.  If you want to look good, you are on the right track.  If you are an assertive person and want to be in the play, then it is natural that you want to enhance your looks.
