  • In Dr. Pimple Popper's new Instagram video, she gets up close and personal with several hidrocystomas so close to her patient's eye.

  • They are dangling precariously off of the eyelid.

  • Dr. Pimple Popper cuts each one with her scalpel and squeezes the clear liquid out.

Dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper, has removed plenty of things from and around her patients' eyes. She tackled everything from a cluster of blackheads to a cyst, as well as other hidrocystomas all growing so close to the eye. And in her latest Instagram video, she is removing multiple hidrocystomas that have formed on the eyelids of her patient.

For the unfamiliar, Dr. Pimple Popper explains what hidrocystomas are in her post caption. She writes: "馃憠馃徏馃憗馃憟馃徏These are hidrocystomas, also known as cystadenomas, sudoriferous cysts, and Moll's gland cysts. They are benign cyst tumors that are derived from either the eccrine or apocrine sweat gland. They commonly effect the eyelid, and slowly grow usually on the face or scalp."

Dr. Pimple Popper also added in the caption that what makes hidrocystomas grow remains a mystery. "The exact cause is not known, but it is said that the eccrine hidrocystoma is due to the obstruction of the sweat gland which causes the retention of secretions and appearance of a dilated cystic structure," she wrote.

In the video, Dr. Pimple Popper gets to work cutting the hidrocystomas with a scalpel and pressing on them to drain each one as she talks to her patient. "It's annoying," says her patient. (Can you even imagine?)

"Yes it is annoying. I'm just going to puncture these. I'm going to try not to squeeze it too much. How many times have you deflated it, once?" asks Dr. P.

"I did it one time and I thought it's just going to come back because it was hanging there (like a bag)," says her patient.

As Dr. Pimple Popper cuts each one, she presses on them and a mix of clear fluid and blood seeps out of each one as they are deflated. "I don't know why we get these. Do you have anyone in your family that had these?" Dr. P asks her patient.

"I think I have an aunt who has one," says the patient.

And her Popaholics are loving it. "EYEmazing馃憦馃徑馃憦馃徑馃憦馃徑鉂わ笍," wrote one follower. A few had ideas about what these peculiar bumps resembled: "Almost like tiny water balloons," and "Like grapes 馃崌," were two possibilities. I'm still in utter shock, tbh.
