Dr. Sandra Lee has earned the nickname “Dr. Pimple Popper” through her many youtube videos of her popping zits for people. However, what you may not know is that her husband is also something of a pimple popper as well!
Watch as a woman goes in to see the doctor with a large lipoma on her back, and he knows EXACTLY what to do next!
Dr. Lee described what happened in the video description:
This is my husband, Dr Jeff Rebish, who is also a board-certified dermatologist, excising a lipoma on a long standing patient of his. She has a pretty sizable one on her left superior shoulder. As you can see we have different techniques as all of us dermatologists do! There is more than one way to remove a lipoma!
Thank you so much for watching!
A lipoma is slow-growing, benign growth of fat cells. It is contained in a thin, fibrous capsule and found right under the skin. A lipoma is typically not tender and moves around easily with slight pressure. A lipoma is not cancerous and treatment generally is not necessary. There is also a condition called familial lipomatosus, where people develop multiple lipomas, especially on the arms and legs, and other family members have these growths as well. If the lipoma is on a pressure-bearing area, it may create discomfort and this is when people seek removal. People also request removal because they don’t like the appearance of these bumps. Often a small incision can be made over the lipoma and they can be “popped” out easily. This is a simple in-office surgical procedure under local anesthesia.
