After a string of relatively tame—if occasionally juicy—blackhead extractions and clogged pores, Dr. Pimple Popper got back to business on Friday. In her newest episode, the doctor—aka, Sandra Lee, MD—delivered the goods with a 15-minute YouTube video that highlights a particularly intense lipoma extraction from the back of a man’s neck. (What better way to kick off your weekend?)
Deemed “The Lipoma Extraction with Two Fingers,” the video opens with Dr. Lee making a large incision along the lump, which the patient explains he’s had for about six years. At first, Dr. Lee is uncertain whether or not it’s a lipoma, which is a “slow-growing fatty lump that’s most often situated between your skin and the underlying muscle layer,” according to the Mayo Clinic. It’s unclear what causes them, though genetics may play a role.
A few cuts—and, fair warning, a fair bit of blood—later, and it’s evident the doctor’s hunch is correct. As she roots around inside of the large pocket of skin, what emerges is indeed a yellow-ish, baseball-size blob with what look like a pair of “fingers” protruding from it. Considering how grisly it all sounds, the procedure is surprisingly chill—Dr. Lee stitches the guy up, says he’ll have a dressing applied, and sends him on his way. She even cheerily suggests a prank that he can pull on his buddy, who is apparently a fan of these videos.
“Bring him a raw piece of chicken tender,” she says, “and say, ‘hey, I brought it to you.'”
