It can include any part of the body including breasts or genitals.
People with BDD may start to avoid social and public situations in case people see them negatively. They may be very self-conscious, using heavy make up or wearing heavy clothes. They check or pick at their skin, check themselves in mirrors excessively, spend a long time styling their hair or applying make up, and comparing themselves to models in magazines or even people in the street.
