Sunday, Dr. Pimple Popper was celebrating the holiday by removing from a mans shoulder. Monday, dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, delivers again with a of her removing buttery steatocystomas, which are benign cysts (more on this below).

This one cried when it left, she tells the patient while working on his shoulder.
Dr. Lee doesnt go in depth in this video, so we did a little digging on what steatocystomas really are: benign cysts that often develop in "multiples" to form a skin disorder known as "steatocystoma multiplex," according to the .
Dr. P tells her patient that, a lot of the time, smaller samples come out of the steatocystomas. But this time around? Not. So. Much. She gets a decent amount of goo (which she compares to butter) out of each opening, which she says is so interesting and satisfying. I guess we all have our own definition of satisfying, eh?
