In Dr. Pimple Popper's new Instagram video, she helps a patient with a serious case of steatocystomas.
The oily little bumps have popped up all over the patient's body.
Dr. Pimple Popper pokes them with her scalpel and squeezes each one out individually.
Dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper, has struck oil. Her latest patient came in covered with steatocystomas. The oily little bumps have been growing all over the patient's body with no relief in sight.
Dr. Pimple Popper adds some background in the Instagram caption: "Wish you could have seen my patients face when I showed them this! Best. Reaction. Ever 😱 #drpimplepopper #steatocystoma" Gah, why tell us when you know you won't be able to show us!?
ICYMI, steatocystomas are pretty interesting little skin bumps. "Steatocystomas typically contain a syrup-like, yellowish, odorless, oily material," Dr. Pimple Popper explained. "If they are inflamed or infected by bacteria, they can develop a foul odor and can be a definite source of social isolation."
Dr. Pimple Popper started the extraction process with her scalpel. She poked a hole in the steatocystoma to create an outlet for the gunk stuffed under the skin. Fans couldn't believe this extraction required an in-office procedure. One wrote, "What is the reason that people cannot pop these awesome pimples themselves?!" Lots of fans chimed in to help the commenter. One compared the contents to "skittles."
Meanwhile, Dr. Pimple Popper keeps on popping away. She has to squeeze all the squiggly, oily gunk out of the steatocystoma and pull the cyst sac out, before the process is complete.
