- In a new Instagram video, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—aka Dr. Pimple Popper—deals with a pilar cyst that goes flying out of a patient’s head.
- It takes some time for Dr. Lee to make the incision wide enough to get the cyst out.
- When the opening is finally big enough, Dr. Lee squeezes it—and the pilar cyst goes flying!
Quick! Someone catch that pop fly!
In a new Instagram video posted Monday, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—dermatologist and host of TLC’s Dr. Pimple Popper—handles a pilar cyst with a very powerful pop. (In case you need a refresher, a pilar cyst is a benign bump that often forms on the scalp, according to Healthline.)
For fans who crave that satisfying cyst pop, this video will be an extreme tease up until the dramatic climax. The first couple of times Lee squeezes the incision on her patient’s scalp, the opening isn’t quite big enough to let the pilar cyst come through.
Finally, after enough scalpel work, the incision is big enough to make way for the cyst—and out it comes! The round pilar cyst goes flying out of the patient’s head, but thankfully, Dr. Lee is able to recover it and display it in the palm of her hand.
“It came out like a cork!!” one fan observed in the comments.
