If you’re trying to eat less butter, might we recommend watching Dr. Pimple Popper’s latest Instagram video? That should turn you off the stuff for good.
In a new Instagram video posted Monday, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—dermatologist and host of TLC’s Dr. Pimple Popper—treats a patient with a straight-up massive steatocystoma on her chest. (A steatocystoma is a benign growth filled with sebum, the substance that lubricates our hair and skin, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.)
“Slimey, yet oh-so satisfying… Steatocystomas!” Lee wrote in Monday’s Instagram caption.
In the video, Lee prods a metal tool into an opening in the patient’s skin, and the yellowy contents of the steatocystoma start running all over the place. It’s a lot. We definitely had to watch this one between gaps in our fingers.
“Looks like vanilla pudding,” one commenter observed. Another compared it to “runny yolk.”
