The report suggests that people who get their nose jobs done could be suffering from some form of mental illness. They could be victims of a condition called as body dysmorphic disorder, a mental condition in which one is unduly worried about minor or perceived bodily defects.

 

It is quite a serious condition where victims have a history of cosmetic surgeries, suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts.

 

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons have issued a warning that  cosmetic surgery should not be conducted on patients who show "excessive concern" about their appearance.
