Any fan of Dr. Pimple Popper's videos knows that she's no stranger to a meaty cyst extraction, but her newest video takes it to an extreme. In a new Instagram post, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—tackles a pair of huge cysts located on a patient's back. (For good measure, she also throws in a dose of Monday motivation: "Congratulations, Popaholics! We pulled it out and made it through another #monday!" she writes in the post's caption.
In the clip, Dr. Lee makes quick work of both cysts, slicing into them—with somewhat grisly, bloody consequences—and squeezing out some thick, reddish gunk. She then uses her scissors and tweezers to remove the sac wall, which helps reduce the odds of the cyst returning.
Cysts form for a variety of reasons, and while it's unclear from the video exactly what type Dr. Lee is extracting here, these could be a pair of epidermoid cysts. According to the Mayo Clinic, epidermoid cysts frequently appear on the neck and trunk, and thankfully, they're often benign and don't even require treatment in all cases. When they do, they're easy enough for a dermatologist to address quickly in a single session.
