Dr. Sandra Lee, MD, returned to the big screen with a brand-new episode of her TV show, Dr. Pimple Popper, on TLC last night. If you're a fan of her Instagram videos but you've never tuned in to the hour-long show, you are seriously missing out on some crazy pops.
Dr. Pimple Popper seems to reserve her more extreme transformations for the show, and the first episode was a doozy. She treated three different patients with three totally different skin issues. One, named Jen, has substantial growths on her ears that cause her depression, pain, and vertigo. The growths are keloids, or a type of raised scar per the American Academy of Dermatology .
In the Dr. Pimple Popper episode , she said they're incredibly painful and she's had them for 11 years. They're constantly itchy, and she fears they're continuing to grow. "I feel like I'm a deformity," she said in the preview. "I'm unnatural." It's heartbreaking, but even these huge keloids are no match for Dr. Pimple Popper.
Dr. Pimple Popper posted the incredible before-and-after photos of Jen's keloid removal to her Instagram feed. The doctor also gave a little insight into the procedure.

She captioned the photos: "On this season premiere of Dr Pimple Popper on @tlc meet Jennifer, who had HUGE keloids on both ears.

In the photos, Dr. Pimple Popper included close-up videos of the keloids prior to removal. They dangle from the tops of her patient's ears and wobble around. But the after photos are jaw-dropping. Dr. Pimple Popper completely removed all the keloids, leaving Jen's ears totally free. The doctor also administers superficial radiation to ensure the keloids don't pop up again. Phew!
Kudos to Dr. Pimple Popper for the incredible transformation.
