BIDAUD, Eric. Reflections on dysmorphophobics disorders in the adolescence. Rev. Mal-Estar Subj. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp.485-498. ISSN 1518-6148.

What we privilege in the dysmorphophobic event of the adolescent body is the dimension of crisis with regard of gaze (or glance).Viewed from this angle, the dysmorphophobic phenomena of the adolescent could constitute a specific axis allowing placing a clinical of the Shame. These common phenomena in the adolescence concern both sexes and are classically defined as dependent on ephebic transformations and on the process of sexuation. We would like to show that in view of this diffuse feeling and with difficulty to name it the adolescent subject is going to have to invent an aesthetic device, a space of creation which finds material on the own body to abandon the annihilation's dimension of gaze (or glance). We so defend the idea that the phobic experience of the adolescent as an "event of the body" is the place of the reconstruction of the space of the fantasy, which makes possible the psychic sexual positioning. Thus a covert problematic will place the adolescent towards what we can name his/her "revisagéification" (without translation) necessary as an answer for the questioning on the realm of the exchange of glances. This idea of construction of the face in the adolescence can be understood as this space where the stage of the mirror takes place and its revisit is assumed, in particular related to the glance and its appropriation, allowing the setting of new assemblies between the subject and the object to build a genital relation towards the other sex. The body builds itself then as glanceable as far as it acquires a face for the Other one, a face-man or a face-woman, joining and becoming identified with the realm of sexuation. We shall thus say that phobic phenomena and aesthetic formation form both structural poles of the process of sexuation.
