People, to include medical professionals, seem to be throwing the term Body Dysmorphic Disorder around willy nilly these days. Unfortunately, many people are uneducated about what Body Dysmorphic Disorder actually is. In the world of bariatrics, it is my suspicion, based on the fact that only 1-2% of the population suffers from Body Dysmorphic Disorder and 90% of people (at least women) suffer from negative body image issues, that post-ops are dealing with DISTORTED BODY IMAGE issues but refer to this as Body Dysmorphic Disorder. I’m here to set the record straight so you know what you’re actually dealing with and IF you meet the criteria for Body Dysmporhic Disorder, then I’ll give you some information about where to get help for that. In the NEXT episode of BariAftercare, the Podcast, I’ll talk all about Body Image Issues to include Negative Body Image, or Distorted Body Image issues. Let’s get started and be sure to listen in next week, as well!
