With the passing of Michael Jackson yesterday, I was wondering if it is possible to be 'addicted' to cosmetic surgery. Is this an established disorder?

I'm a sufferer of BDD as mentioned above and have been for numerous cosmetic surgery Hertfordshire treatments at http://www.pinehillhospital.co.uk/

I don't know about an addiction to cosmetic surgery, but there is a condition known as Body Dysmorphic Disorder.
