In the last few years, pimple popping and cyst removal has become very popular and probably the most popular as well as the most prolific are the ones posted by Dr Sandra Lee, AKA Dr Pimple Popper. She has done hundreds of videos showing some of the grossest extractions of all time, so when she uses phrases such as “the mother of all lipomas,” “a bear of a lipoma” and a “bowling ball of a lipoma”, you are in for one of the grossest removals she’s done to date.
What got to me possibly the most is after she has removed it, what she has to do to make the patient’s back look normal again is what I found quite disturbing. The patient wa awake during the procedure and it’s a lucky thing for him that he could not watch it’s removal. I know this is something I wouldn’t want to see.
What is a lipoma?
A lipoma is a growth of fat cells in a thin, fibrous capsule usually found just below the skin. Lipomas aren’t cancer and don’t turn into cancer. They are found most often on the torso, neck, upper thighs, upper arms, and armpits, but they can occur almost anywhere in the body. One or more lipomas may be present at the same time.
Lipomas are the most common noncancerous soft tissue growth.
