  • In Dr. Pimple Popper's new Instagram video, she helps a patient with a giant pilar cyst that grew on his scalp.

  • The cyst only spurts out a bit of gunk at a time and very slowly.

  • Ultimately, Dr. Pimple Popper has to cut out the whole cyst, sac and all, to ensure it doesn't reappear.

It can be difficult to remember every little thing on the to-do list. Even dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper, admits it can be a struggle. But, she makes sure never to miss the important things, like removing a massive cyst sac.

When a patient comes in with a pilar cyst, she knows exactly what to do. Dr. Pimple Popper hinted at what's to come in the Instagram caption: "When you remember that one thing you鈥檝e been trying to think of all day. Got it! #drpimplepopper #sacremoval"

She also added some extra intel on the video: "many people have multiple pilar cysts." The video jumps right in with a close-up shot of Dr. Pimple Popper squeezing away. There's a tiny hole and a squiggle of gunk shooting out. It continues for a while, but the cyst still appears totally stuffed.

So, Dr. Pimple Popper switches to a scissor strategy. She trims around and pulls at the whole cyst until it's free. When it emerges, one fan writes "It looks like a Lima bean."

Bean or not, that was a doozy of a pop. Another fan commented, "I almost threw up, but had to see the ending. 馃あ"

Still, many fans had lingering questions. "How does this happen?!? And why is seeing the resulting gaping hole so satisfying?" They can re-watch the pop video as they wait for Dr. Pimple Popper to respond.
