Dr. Sandra Lee – better know as Pimple Popper to her internet admirers – removed a "cute, bouncy" lipoma from a man's temple in her latest YouTube video.
She said a lipoma, or benign fatty tumor, had been growing along her patient's hairline for years. Fatty lumps like these usually grow between the skin and muscle in different areas of the body, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
Lee began the procedure by outlining the small lump with a marker before slicing into the skin with her scalpel. She carefully peeled back the layers of skin to reveal the round mass in her patient's temple.
"It's so cute," she said as she snipped pieces of the lump out with surgical scissors.
"I'm sorry that I always compare pops to food," Lee captioned the video. "But this one is cute and bouncy like a little gumdrop."
In order to fully remove the lipoma, Lee searched the pocket of skin for the final bits of the tumor. Lee said she removes the entire lipoma to prevent it from growing back in the future.
After snipping out the final pieces of the lipoma, Lee cauterized the area, stitched up her patient, and sent him home.
