Get ready for some heart-pumping lipoma action. In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—pulls out a lumpy lipoma from a patient’s stomach. Many imaginative fans commented on the video, saying the growth looks like a vital organ hanging on for dear life.
The man featured in this video has a torso is spotted with lipomas. In this particular clip, Dr. Lee puts laser-focus on one growth in particular, which is buried in his right hip.
During the procedure, Dr. Lee pulls at the lipoma with her gloved hands to try and free it. At times, she adds in some forceps to grip the growth for extra leverage. Eventually, her squeezing and pulling pays off, with the massive growth popping out in a quite satisfying manner. After snipping it's stalk, the growth is gone for good.
Many fans in the comments have differing opinions on what the lipoma looks like, with one fan simply writing, “Aliens.” Others add the lipoma looks like a little anatomical heart or another non-specific organ, which is more on target.
“That thing has an aorta,” one fan commented. And you’ll totally see it too.
Lipomas are fatty masses situated between the skin and muscle, which are usually soft and doughy to the touch. They are noncancerous and usually harmless.
