- In a new YouTube video , dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee, MDaka, Dr. Pimple Popperremoves a lipoma on a womans forehead.
- Dr. Lee removes the lipoma using medical scissors and tweezers to reach in and pull it out.
- A lipoma is a fatty lump that appears frequently between the skin and muscle layers. They are often benign but on rare occasions they can be cancerous.
After unsuccessful visits with six (yes, six) other dermatologists, dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lees latest patient decided to come in with her sister, who is a fan of her videos. They hoped a seventh visit could finally get the job done.
The lump on her head was rather large for a lipoma, about the size ping pong ball. It had gotten under the muscle beneath the skin, which is what caused the bump on her head to get so big. The doctor made an incision over the top of the lump, reached in with her tweezers and scissors, and pulled the bits out piece by piece.
Lipomas do not always need to be removed, but when they are painful, growing, or appear undesirable to the eye, it might be best to get them checked out to be safe. After some stitching up, the patient was good to go. The removal of the lipoma resulted in an air bubble beneath the skin, which made a little... poot when pressure was applied.
See, here's your little egg yolk! Dr. Pimple Popper jokes, as she presents the pieces of the lipoma to her patient. Luckily, this egg was pretty easy to crack.
