Dorian Gray Syndrome

Dorian Gray Syndrome or commonly called as (DGS) is a sickness which happens when a person has extreme pride in one’s own appearance accompanied by difficulties coping with the aging process and with the requirements of maturation. I have heard many woman who even in their mid 60’s and 70’s had their face and body undergone some surgery to prevent their aging.

Study shows that those who had this Dorian Gray Syndrome may be heavy users of cosmetic medical procedures and products in an attempt to preserve their youth.  The name alludes to Oscar Wilde’s famous novel The Picture of Dorian Gray.

The Dorian Gray Syndrome is characterized by a triad of symptoms combining diagnostic signs of dysmorphophobia, narcissistic character traits, and arrests in psychic maturation often seen in paraphilias. Dorian Gray patients frequently are excessive users of “medical lifestyle” products.

So, if you are one of the people who heavily believes to maintain her youth seeking medical help, please take the case seriously , you might be suffering from this syndrome.  One must understand that there is no such word as forever beauty or forever young.  We can be young at heart but our appearance will eventually fade and we will aged.  DGS patients are often users or abusers of hair growth and weight-loss products, mood enhancers, medication against erectile dysfunction, they are often owners of gym membership cards and very often patients for cosmetic surgery (laser resurfacing, botox injections, aesthetic surgery, etc.).

If you are one of those who desires forever youth and wanting to find the chalice of christ whom others belief that can give forever youth, think twice again. Appearance can be deceiving, what is far more important is not just delaying your aging process, going to cosmetic surgery and dying from not eating too much because of being afraid to get fat.

Although, there is still no known cure regarding this syndrome, the best way to deal with this is to have an open mind and seek professional help, psychotherapy and cognitive-behavioral methods are some of the treatment strategies you can use.
