Dr. Pimple Popper Pops ‘Buttery’ Cysts In Cringeworthy New Video

  • Dr. Pimple Popper just shared a new video on her Instagram.
  • In the video, Sandra Lee, MD, squeezes out a ribbon of sebum, a yellow-ish, oily substance, from a few different cysts known as steatocystomas.
  • Steatocystomas are benign cysts that usually occur in groups as part of a larger condition called steatocystoma multiplex.

Sunday, Dr. Pimple Popper was celebrating the holiday by removing an Easter egg-sized cyst from a man’s shoulder. Monday, dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, delivers again with a just-posted video of her removing buttery steatocystomas, which are benign cysts (more on this below).

The doctor tackles multiple steatocystomas, each one oozing with a different yellow, oil-like substance. Before opening each area, the Dr. tells us that she used lignocaine—a numbing a medication—to prep the area.

“This one cried when it left,” she tells the patient while working on his shoulder.

Dr. Lee doesn’t 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 U.S. National Library of Medicine.

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?
