Addressed His Body Dysmorphia
Body dysmorphic disorder is a mental illness where a person becomes obsessed over the way he or she looks. Reid also was diagnosed with the same illness, and the only thing that mattered to him was his looks. He used to take pictures of himself from every angle and analyzing every feature.
Soon he started seeing imperfections that weren't apparent to others, and as a matter of fact, he underwent several cosmetic surgeries to fix the things that he sees wrong with himself.

But his belive came crashing after he woke up screaming his head off from pain. After the surgery, he had to wear a full facial mask for two weeks, and afraid someone would find out about his surgery; he left Los Angeles, headed to Joshua Tree, and stayed at a hotel for the next two weeks.
