In regard to scar location, some researchers have hypothesized that it is more difficult to adapt to socially visible scars, such as scars on the face, because of the stigmatizing reactions of others. Other researchers have argued that it is more difficult to cope with hidden scars because the person has fewer opportunities to learn how to deal with the reactions of others, so he or she lives in fear of the scar being revealed. The research to date has not provided strong support for

were generally 50% or higher, suggesting that at least 50% of individual differences in body image problems within a population are due to genetic factors. Most studies controlled for body mass index (BMI) in analyses to ensure that the heritability of body image problems is not due to the well-known heritability of body weight. Indeed, body image problems were moderately heritable even after controlling for the effects of body weight. Twin study findings were recently replicated in the

Stable measurements of both values are possible after approximately 20–30 min- utes of data collection. This procedure has been demonstrated to be both reliable and valid in a number of studies by Gardner and his colleagues. The software also permits investigators to use the method of adjustment whereby participants see an initial image that is too thin or too wide and
