Dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper is a total pro when it comes to lipoma removals—and she's got the YouTube videos to prove it.
And her latest drop is particularly gnarly: In the 17-minute vid, Dr. P yanks out a lumpy lipoma that she says reminds her of "jellyfish." However, Popaholics strongly disagreed and had ideas of their own.
"I was thinking more octopus like," one fan said. While more than a few compared it to chicken: "I will never look at raw chicken the same again," a dedicated viewer lamented.
Dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper will be the first to tell you that she absolutely loves comparing her lipoma extractions to random things like animals, inanimate objects, and even different kinds of foodstuff. She's already extracted a slippery "serpent" lipoma, a "mango" lipoma, and a "brick" lipoma.
And her latest pop on YouTube is no different: In it, she tackles a "jellyfish" lipoma that Popaholics swear looks more like a piece of raw chicken cutlet.
"SWIPE ➡️ I think I found a 'Jellyfish' instead of a lipoma. Click the link in my bio to watch now! #drpimplepopper #lipoma," she captioned the abbreviated Instagram video. She also posted the full 17-minute vid on YouTube—and it's most certainly required viewing for Dr. P fans!
At the beginning of the video, Dr. P talks to her patient as she starts to make an incision where the lipoma is. Her patient seems to be a bit nervous but our good doctor assures her she is "strong" and "doing awesome." As she works on opening up the skin, Dr. P uses the cauterizing tool to prevent any unnecessary bleeding.
"Let's see if it will squeeze out like an easy birth!" says Dr. P as she uses her gloved fingers to feel around the lipoma, eventually using both of her hands to squeeze the sides of the fatty growth. "I'm just gonna squeeze you like a deep tissue massage and see if it pops out."
The patient goes on to mention that the lipoma got in the way of her workouts—so she had to stop. As Dr. P keeps working on massaging the lipoma from under her patient's skin, her assistant gives her a hand and helps her squeeze—because this is a big, juicy one!
"It's a little tearable...not terrible like bad terrible. But tear-ah-ble. Sometimes lipomas easily tear," Dr. P explains.
As the struggle to yank it out completely continues, the patient says that she's helping to will it all out. And Dr. P agrees, also encouraging it to just come out already: "Don't be a butt, exactly! Be a cool lipoma, not an uncool lipoma!" says Dr. P.
The IG video ends there, but in the full YouTube video Dr. P continues to work to remove the lipoma. With a few additional snips, she's finally able to grab the lipoma and pull it out entirely. Hallelujah.
"He's a cute one!" says Dr. P says with relief.
And of course, her fans were all over this one: "Are you sure that wasn’t an organ you pulled out? 😂," wrote one Popaholic. "I be wondering how they smell 😩😍," said another. "It kinda looks like squishy chicken 😭😂," chimed a particularly grossed out viewer.
