• In a new YouTube video, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—aka Dr. Pimple Popper—removes a giant ‘surprise’ steatocystoma.
• Steatocystomas are benign cysts that are usually filled with a yellow, oily substance called sebum.
• Sebum is produced by the body’s sebaceous glands and plays a role in lubricating the skin and hair.
Grab the popcorn, because Dr. Pimple Popper’s latest pop looks a whole lot like melted butter.
In a new YouTube video posted Wednesday, dermatologist and TLC star Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—aka Dr. Pimple Popper—treats a patient with a steatocystoma on their chest. A steatocystoma is a benign cyst filled with sebum, an oily substance produced by the body’s sebaceous glands and plays a role in lubricating the skin and hair.
As soon as Lee cuts into the growth, it starts to ooze yellowy pus that looks disturbingly like butter. She keeps squeezing, and the steatocystoma keeps oozing. Eventually, Lee snips out the sac so to prevent the mass from returning. Then she stitches up the incision.
“Well…that was beautifully satisfying 😂” wrote on commenter.
“Satisfying in oh so many ways 😍😍😍 love the sac at the end 😍😍😍 more more more!!! Thanks Dr. Lee ❤️” said another happy client.
