People who are not happy with the body image seek ISKD / Precice nail surgery. Body image refers to the way in which one perceives self. When the height is considered some people may feel that the height is inadequate or the body proportion is not correct. Body proportion refers to the length of the limb relative to the length of the trunk. This condition is called as Height Dysphoria or unhappiness about the height. Dysphoria is opposite to the word euphoria and the person suffers from neurosis about the height. The Height Dysphoria has another version too which is rare and it is dysmorphic disorder of the body. This is psychosis and not neurosis and should never be treated with a surgery.
