In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—tackles a stuck lipoma that looks like a piece of rich uni sashimi. The lipoma is one of many speckled across the man's torso, looking something like oddly placed abs.

In the clip, Dr. Lee makes an incision along the length of one of the mass. She then begins to squeeze the lipoma, hoping to force it out with ease. But the patient looks on as the famed dermatologist plays a bit of tug of war with the growth.

“Get outta here,” the patient says. “Go on, ya little stinker.”

With that encouragement, Dr. Lee pops out the lipoma with a firm squeeze — all while the brave patient watches. And the mass truly does look like a piece of delicious uni. That is sea urchin for all you sashimi newbies.

In the caption to the clip, Dr. Lee asks a simple question: “If you could, would you want to watch your lipoma removal?” The comments from fans answer the question with a resounding “yes.”

A lipoma is a fatty noncancerous growth that grows between the skin and muscle, and is usually a yellowish-orange color.
