According to psychiatrist Dr. David Veal: "Two out of three of all the patients who come to see me with Body Dysmorphic Disorder since the rise of camera phones have a compulsion to repeatedly take and post selfies on social media sites."

"Selfies frequently trigger perceptions of self-indulgence or attention-seeking social dependence that raises the damned-if-you-do and damned-if-you-don't spectre of either narcissism or very low self-esteem", said Pamela Rutledge in Psychology Today.

A teenager tried to commit suicide after he failed to take the perfect selfie after he became so obsessed with capturing the perfect shot that he spent 10 hours a day taking up to 200 selfies.
