You wont want to chow down on this chicken tender. In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD removes a slender, jiggly lipoma resembling a raw chicken strip from a patients arm.
In the short clip, Dr. Lee uses a pair of surgical tweezers and some blunt surgical scissors to loosen the lipoma from the womens arm. She then pulls the fatty tissue through a small incision to remove it in one piece. The growth emerges looking like a raw chicken tender, with a thin and jiggling appearance.
A lipoma is a benign tumor made up of fat tissue, and are actually most commonly found in men. The growths are usually painless and commonly grow on the arms, back, and legs. The distinct yellowish color of lipomas is the same color of most fatty tissue on the body, and gives this growth an especially chicken-like appearance.
In the video, the patient and her family say theyve been waiting to say goodbye to the growth. Dr. Lee suggests the family say, Hasta la lipoma to bid it farewell. Hopefully the family will be OK saying goodbye to any chicken strip cravings theyve been harboring, too.
