  • In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper pops three little lipomas out of a patient's body.

  • The lipomas look similar to pieces of raw popcorn chicken or, as one fan says, little brains.

  • A lipoma is a fatty noncancerous growth that grows between the skin and muscle.

These pops give a whole new meaning to "popcorn chicken." In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—pops three little lipomas out of a patient body. And these fatty masses look exactly like little nuggets of raw popcorn chicken ready to be breaded.

In the clip, Dr. Lee makes three small incision, targeting the fatty lumps that are clustered together. It's unclear from the video where the lipomas are located on the patient's body.

One by one, Dr. Lee pops the “raw popcorn chicken pieces” out of the patient, making them surface above skin. Once the trio of pops are successfully squeezed from their homes, the famed derm then starts snipping them off with ease. It’s a quite methodical procedure—and a textbook removal of all three masses.

“They look like little brains,” one fan commented on the video. They may look like brains to some, but the growths definitely look like little lumps of meat from your favorite chicken spot’s fridge.

A lipoma is a fatty noncancerous growth that grows between the skin and muscle. The masses are usually a yellowish-orange color and tend to run in families.
