Dr. Pimple Popper got people clinging to their tummies after sharing a video of a huge skin of the face being squeezed and wiped up.
In the clip uploaded to her official @ drpimplepopperTikTok account, paramedic real name Sandra Lee MD explained how she handled the liquid-filled bump.
First, she makes a tiny incision with one of her surgical instruments and gently presses on both sides.
A patient with a steatocystoma has a cyst that emits a stream of yellow fluid that she wipes away as she walks.
Next, with another tool, she grabs a stiffer white tissue from inside the cyst and begins pulling it out.

When it comes out, a pink handkerchief is torn out with it and the paramedic cuts it off with scissors.
It looks like this is the cyst sac and it is important that Dr. Lee removes this so the cyst doesn’t fill up and reappear.
She used the “butter” emoji in a follow-up clip showing how she dealt with more cysts.
The video has been viewed more than 3.7 million since Dr. Lee uploaded it to the app five days ago (July 11th) with the caption, “A nice squeeze for you this weekend!”
Several thousand people commented on the clip, and many admitted that it was so vivid that they experienced all sorts of uncomfortable physical sensations.
One wrote, “Boy, if I tell you … my eyes became WATER.”
“Somebody else’s stomach hurts?” commented a second person.
A third user said, “OK, just wanted to see it all pop after my stomach hurts.”
“It made me itchy how they buried themselves and the blood and the cut,” wrote someone else.
Meanwhile, others were more disgusted to see the inside of the cyst than the liquid, with a joke, “It looked like you were pulling his brain out.”
“I don’t want to see this, but I really want to see this,” said another conflicting viewer.
