Dr Pimple Popper, aka Sandra Lee, a Los Angeles-based dermatologist, has officially released a video of her popping a huge ‘spot’ the size of a bowling ball from a man’s back.
For weeks, she’s been teasing the results of the big pop – and finally we get to see the enlarged lipoma in all its glory.
Now, we must mention that it is not actually a pimple or a cyst, which is a fluid-filled sac.
This is a lipoma which is a fatty lump that appears between the skin and the muscle layer.
In this case, the patient’s lump was so big, it had to be divided into a two-part video series.
Sharing the video to YouTube, Dr Lee wrote: ‘Initially I thought it maybe, just maybe, would pop out almost whole.
‘But it wasn’t meant to be — [there were] too many fibrous connections keeping it attached to him.’
The videos show Dr Lee struggling to extract the giant ball made of fatty tissue and pulling and prodding it until she finally manages to release it after just over an hour working on it.
After removing all the remains, Lee then stitches up her patient and closes the open wound.
The procedure took place last month and the patient is reportedly doing fine.
