• On Season 3 Episode 3 of TLC's Dr. Pimple Popper, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD treated a patient named Kevin.
• Kevin had a massage lipoma on his hip that was preventing him from doing everyday activities.

In the lead-up to Season 3 Episode 3 of TLC's Dr. Pimple Popper, we brought you exclusive footage of the show's star removing a massive lipoma from a patient's hip. Now, we know the hilarious that happened after Kevin's procedure was finished.
On Thursday evening, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD live-tweeted the latest episode of her hit TLC show—the one in which she treats Kevin.
"I mean it's big," Lee wrote of Kevin's lipoma, "but c'mon I've seen bigger!"
In case you missed it, Kevin came to Lee's office with a gigantic lump on his hip. The growth had been affecting his ability to do daily activities, like working out. Right away, Lee suspected it was a lipoma. "I think it's a lipoma, which is benign, but I think that the's a perfect example of somebody who has a benign growth that really affects his life," Lee says in the episode. "He stopped working out, it affects his work, and it clearly affects him emotionally."
When Lee cut into the growth, she discovered the was right. After TLC aired the removal, Lee tweeted a photo of the lipoma and revealed that Kevin lost 2.5 pounds:
She also shared something amazing—or disturbing, depending on how you feel about people touching their own lipomas, I suppose. Well, not just touching their own lipomas—more like....cradling 'em like a baby.
"I joked with Kevin that he had a C-section so I let him hold his lipoma like a baby!" Lee tweeted. Yes, folks, here is a video of Kevin snuggling and poking the huge fatty growth that once resided inside his body:
We know—it seems ridiculous. But in a follow-up tweet, Lee explained why it can actually be valuable for people to do this.
"We make light of this but I actually think it’s important for people who want to to hold their lipoma to do it," she wrote. "So you can tell it who’s the REAL boss. That it doesn’t have control over YOU!"
