'Dr Pimple Popper' Season Squeezings: A mom gets rid of 45 cysts and granny Marylin's free of potato-like lump
Liz, a mother of six, decided to see Dr Lee about her cysts only after her little daughter started growing one, and turned out they had a skin condition called Pilomatricoma
On the premiere episode of 'Dr Pimple Popper' Season Squeezing special, mother of six children, Liz, finally decided to take a little moment to pay heed to her own problems. Liz had lumps on her head and neck that she wanted to get rid of but never could take time out of her busy schedule. She would have probably ignored it for longer if she didn’t see a similar cyst forming on 5-year-old daughter Elsie’s head.
Dr Lee confirmed she had a skin condition called Pilomatricoma and it’s genetically transferred to her daughter, but it’s not life-threatening. Little Elsie told her she calls her lump unicorn’s horn. Dr Lee started working on Liz’s cysts and compared the oily yellow pus to butter. After popping around 45 cysts she had accumulated enough butter to bake a Christmas cake! Dr Lee put a tiny Christmas cap on Elsie’s unicorn horn and the mother and daughter duo went home with big smiles. Dr Lee posted a picture with the family and captioned it, “Little Santa hat for the Pilomatricoma.”
Meanwhile, 76-year-old Marylin struggled with a big lump on her arm. Her biggest concern was that she not being able to make Christmas dinner for her grandkids. She said her arm hurt from all the weight of the lump and added that she wouldn't be able to carry a turkey tray. She informed Dr Lee that she had been carrying around that lump for 15 years and it just kept getting bigger and bigger.
Dr Lee got rid of the lipoma she had been carrying and by the end of the surgery, they accumulated 3 pounds and 14 ounces worth of jelly-like substance. Grandma Marylin was overjoyed as she hugged the doctor and thanked her for making the Christmas miracle come true. She was happy that she could keep up the Christmas tradition of family dinner with her children and grandchildren. Dr Lee posted a picture with the grandma and her punctured tray full of Lipoma and captioned it, "Me & Marilyn and her lipoma!"
