Whether you’re a fan or not, there’s no denying that Dr. Pimple Popper has attracted quite a following. Sandra Lee, the dermatologist that prefers to go by that moniker, has created a YouTube channel that revolves around her exploits in her chosen field. This isn’t just some kind of random ‘day in the life’ stuff either. Lee welcomes viewers right into her office to see how she gets to the bottom of some seriously perplexing skin issues – with the consent of the patients, of course.
Oftentimes, this revolves around her removing or draining rather unsightly growths, and the results of her efforts are certainly not for the squeamish. One of her more recent efforts is attracting a ton of attention, as the doctor has noted that the growth is one of the worst that she’s seen. As AWM shares, a young man arrived in Lee’s office with what has been dubbed as a “unicorn” cyst. That’s partially because it was a massive growth right smack dab in the middle of his forehead.
Lee got to work right away, and she determined that an incision in the lump would do the trick.
“He really took good care of the cyst. He nurtured it and let it get nice and to this size and not popped,” she said in the video. “That’s impressive.”
After she made her incision, an unfathomable amount of pus and gunk would come out. Thankfully, it turned out to be nothing all that serious. As always, viewers were quite impressed with Lee’s latest effort.
“Wow-that ‘unicorn’ actually deflated! These videos NEVER disappoint-whether just short of 5 mins., or up to a half hour. It’s amazing how the human body will make room for stuff it no longer needs,” shared one user.
“I think that all us non-medical viewers are simply saying is that compared to other procedures we’ve seen…this one had a lot more blood than we were used to seeing. That’s it,” wrote another commenter.
“I don’t understand how people let things get to this size. Six years?!? Over six years walking around like that?? I would never!! I just don’t get it,” added one poster.
Six years is certainly a long time to be walking around with a lump of that size, and the man is quite fortunate that it didn’t turn out to be anything more serious.
“If life gives you a cyst on the forehead, why not request a Harry-Potter-scar from the doc?” posted one user.
“Feel like I’m the only one who loves scars. I have a slightly slanted vertical one on the left side of my forehead, had it since I was 1, and I love it. I’d be sad if it shrunk completely lol,” shared a commenter.
“I felt so bad for this guy. So, glad you could help him out, Dr. Lee. Impressive work! You never cease to amaze me,” chimed in another poster.
It was another big success for Dr. Pimple Popper – and for her ever-popular channel.
