It's a juicy one! In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper – also known as a dermatologist and TLC moderator Dr. Sandra Lee – a small upper arm lipoma with a satisfactory bang. This lipoma looks exactly like a juicy slice of canned peach, which makes the process all the more fascinating.
In the clip, Dr. Lee made an incision along the length of the tiny growth and then pressed her fingers on the surrounding skin. With a little force, part of the stubborn mass pops out – but there is more under the skin that does not want to move. Dr. Lee uses surgical tweezers to grasp the remaining portion of the orange growth, pull it out, and cut it off.
"It looks like a slice of peach," commented a fan. Other commentators compared the lipoma to a mango slice and an orange segment, making it a grotesque fruit salad.
Lipomas are masses of fat between the skin and muscle. They are not cancerous and are usually harmless and often feel soft and doughy. The cause of lipomas is not fully understood, but growth usually runs in families, so genetics are likely to play a role.
