- In her latest Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper extracted a lipoma from a woman's forearm.
- The lipoma was located very close to the woman's tattoo, but the dermatologist popped it easily.
- Dr. Pimple Popper uses a scalpel and scissors to create an opening above the lipoma and then squeezes it out with her fingers.
Sometimes dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD (a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper) has to pull out all the tools in her toolbox to remove a pesky pimple, but others come out on command.
That's the case with Dr. Pimple Popper's latest pop, which features a patient with a colorful tattoo practically surrounding the lipoma on her forearm. (Luckily, the tattoo doesn't actually touch the lipoma, so her tattoo shouldn't be affected.)

The video begins with Dr. Pimple Popper making a small incision with her scalpel right above the lipoma. It's a smaller lipoma and there's barely a visible bump, but the doctor knows exactly where this pesky mass is hiding under the skin.
This pop is so routine for Dr. Pimple Popper, she doesn't comment on the process once throughout the video. Instead, she makes small talk with her patient and gives a shoutout to a popaholic who couldn't join her friend in person. "Hi, Stacy! These are lipomas for Stacy," the doctor said.
Dr. Pimple Popper asks her patient, "Do you want to see them afterwards when they're sitting on the table?" Her patient replies, "sure," but doesn't seem so enthusiastic.
Tbh, an extracted lipoma isn't for everyone-it's essentially a large, fatty, benign tumor . It starts as one benign fat cell, which clones itself and grows. In some people it grows to pretty impressive proportions.
Back to the popping action. Dr. Pimple Popper drops her tools and with only her fingers gives the area a little squeeze. Pop, the little yellow glob comes right out, voila!
A pop doesn't have to be hard work to be oh-so satisfying.
