  • In a new YouTube video, Dr. Pimple Popper removes a third “eyeball” buried in a patient’s shoulder.

  • The video shows everything from initial incision to removal to stitching the patient up.

  • The cyst is likely epidermoid cyst, which contain a collection of wet dead skin cells and keratin.

In a new YouTube video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—removes a third “eyeball” buried in a patient’s shoulder. The cyst is so convincing at masquerading as an eye that you’ll be waiting for it to blink.

In the clip, Dr. Lee makes an oblong incision into the growth to reach the cyst. The famed dermatologist then uses surgical tools to loosen the stuck cyst, poking around inside the patient’s skin. Throughout this portion of the procedure, it looks like she’s poking and prodding an eyeball out of its socket.

Once loosened, Dr. Lee squeezes the cyst, forcing out a ball of compacted contents. She then works to snip the bottom of the stubborn cyst free from the patient’s shoulder. After the growth is fully removed and the patient is stitched up, Dr. Lee shows him the alien-like growth removed from his shoulder.

“Ew, that was in my shoulder?” he says.

“That’s all skin trapped under there for years finally released,” Dr. Lee tells the patient. It seems as though "ew" was an appropriate reaction.

The cyst is likely epidermoid cyst, which contain a collection of wet dead skin cells and keratin. This type of cyst can occur on the face, neck and body.
