In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—grips and pulls out a lipoma that resembles canned peaches. This is one stone fruit that’s juicy in all the worst ways.
At the beginning of the clip, Dr. Lee shows the growth on the patient’s upper arm. She jokes with the patient, telling her, “If it was in a little different place, it could be like a bicep, you know?”
Without the perfect #bicephack placement, the growth is up for removal. Dr. Lee squeezes the growth through a small incision, with juicy fluid flowing out. Then, to excise the lipoma, the famed dermatologist grips and pulls the growth out with her fingers.
“You just gotta hold on to these things because you never know. They try to get away from you,” Dr. Lee says in the clip. “It’s like this happy medium. You can’t pull too hard because they break and tear. You want it to come out whole because you know you get it all.”
And, in the end, Dr. Lee predictably "gets it all," resulting in a jiggly orange-colored mass.
“This is just like peaches,” one fan commented. Told you so.
A lipoma is a fatty noncancerous growth that grows between the skin and muscle, and is usually a yellowish-orange color.
