This pop is certainly a sight to see. In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD removes a cyst resembling a bloodshot eyeball from a patient's scalp. And you can actually see the growth look around before being booted from its host's head.
In the clip, Dr. Lee uses a pair of blunt scissors to grip the encapsulated cyst, wiggling the growth through an incision. During the loosening process, the eyeball-like cyst bulges out, appearing to look around through the eyelid-like incision. After some additional encouragement, the cyst pops out in one piece. "When your mom said she had an eye in the back of her head, do you think this is what she meant?" one fan commented on the video, tagging a friend. Hopefully not. The growth seen in this video is an encapsulated pilar cyst , which occur on the scalp. Pilar cysts are filled with sloughed off dead skin cells and keratin , which get trapped in the round growth. Removing the growth in one piece greatly decreases the chance it will return, which is good news for this patient. I'm sure he's pleased with just two eyeballs. Take a look at this eye-like removal yourself in the clip below:
