What's more enjoyable: Eating creamy lemon custard, or watching Dr. Pimple Popper force it out of an incision in a patient's head?
We like our citrusy desserts and all, but we're going to have to choose the latter, if we're being honest. In a new video posted Thursday, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD-the dermatologist and TLC star behind the Dr. Pimple Popper account-drains a gnarly steatocystoma on a patient's forehead. In the caption, Lee compares the steatocystoma's contents to "creamy lemon custard," and to be perfectly honest...she isn't wrong.
"Never eating lemon custard again, but great pop," one commenter wrote.
The video begins with the steatocystoma already oozing a pit of sebum. Lee pushes on it with her fingers, and out comes more milky-looking fluid. She continues to drain the cyst until the sac is ready to be yanked out.
What is a steatocystoma?
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine , a steatocystoma is a noncancerous cyst filled with sebum, the oily stuff that lubricates our skin and hair. That's why steatocystomas tend to come out looking so...buttery. (No, seriously. Steatocystomas always look disturbingly like dairy products .)
