- In a new Instagram video posted Wednesday, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—aka Dr. Pimple Popper—treats a patient with a pilar cyst in her forehead.
- As Lee removes the cyst, she and the patient discuss lobster, of all things!
- When the pilar cyst comes out, Lee insists it looks like a cherry pit.
We think it’s safe to say that no doctor on Earth has mastered bedside manner to the degree that Dr. Sandra Lee, MD has. Case in point, a new Instagram video in which the dermatologist and host of TLC’s Dr. Pimple Popper removes a patient’s pilar cyst…while chatting casually about lobster.
As Lee creates an incision in the woman’s forehead, the two talk about regional differences in lobster throughout New England. What a time to be alive!
“I had the best lobster bisque ever in Nantucket,” Lee says. (The bisque had puff pastry on top, just in case you were wondering. Sounds delish.)
Pilar cysts—also known as trichilemmal cysts or wens—are cysts that form around hair follicles, which is why they tend to be found on the head. In the past, Lee has encountered pilar cysts that look like macadamia nuts and orange seeds.
Eventually, Lee frees the pilar cyst from its hole. “You’ve got quite a cherry pit here in your head,” she tells the patient.
In the comments section, other fan insisted it looked like “a giant pearl.”
