- In a relatively mild new video, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—aka Dr. Pimple Popper—sews up a patient’s earlobe after apparently removing an epidermoid cyst.
- Epidermoid cysts are the ones most typical to hairless areas like the lobe.
- They form from a burrowing of skin cells and then fill up with keratin and other skin debris.
Cysts can appear anywhere where there is skin, including some tricky locales like the neck and genitals. In a new Instagram video, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—the dermatologist and TLC host better known as Dr. Pimple Popper–stitches up the earlobe of a patient after removing what looks like an epidermoid cyst from the lobe.
Epidermoid cysts occur when outer-skin cells do not shed get buried beneath the skin and multiply. The cells create a wall and fill up with keratin, as well as dead skin and air. Most occur in hairless places of the body, like an earlobe.
In the clip, there isn’t much of the removal—no squishy lumps or glutinous wads for fans who come for a gross-out—but we do view the surgical stitching prowess of Sandra Lee MD and get to know the patient, who seems like a dear and wants to work in mental health in children’s hospitals in her post-graduation, post-cyst future.
