TLC's 'Dr Pimple Popper' viewers are drawn to the “pop” but stay for the stories of Dr Sandra Lee transforming lives. The current season features some of the toughest cases Dr Lee has had to tackle yet, from cysts to lipomas, rhinophymas and everything in between. 

'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 7 featuring Dr Lee is up for any challenge. Episode 8 of the show titled, 'Once, Twice, Three times a Keloids' will feature two patients and Robert is one of them who has a scalp keloid at the back of his head. Robert revealed that he has consulted many doctors and gone through three surgeries, but the keloids came back and grew worse with each time. Robert was quite annoyed and stressed because of those keloids and wanted a permanent solution for them. Dr Lee is now Robert's last hope for giving him a Keloid-free head. However, while looking at Robert's keloids, Dr Lee refused and said that it wasn't her cup of tea. Robert was disheartened and disappointed because Dr Lee declined to operate on him.

For those who are unaware of keloids, it is caused by an excess of a protein in the skin during healing. Keloids are often lumpy or ridged. The scar rises after an injury or condition has healed, such as a surgical incision or acne. Dr Lee was worried that if she splits those keloids by slicing them into two halves, then how would she stitch it back because there was no extra skin. Dr Lee refused because she knew it could be a dangerous surgery for Robert.

Dr Lee knew that only a keloid expert could treat Robert's keloids of 15 years. Dr Lee informed Robert that she knows Dr Umar, who is a keloid specialist and will surely help him out. Dr Umar, after talking with Robert and looking at his keloids, said that he would try to remove them. So both Dr Lee and Dr Umar paired up to remove Robert's keloids and operate on him. But viewers have to wait until next week to see Robert's surgery and results because Robert wanted to pee in the middle of the surgery.

As soon as the episode ended fans took to expressing their opinions. A fan tweeted, "This is pretty bad seeing Robert can't stand still knowing he's under surgery with keloids but has to go to the bathroom and Sandra Lee is worried he'll be lightheaded and fall #DrPimplePopper." Another fan tweeted,"@DrPimplePopper @TLC another mid surgery pee #drpimplepopper #popaholic #TLC #pimplepopper." A tweet reads,"Damn Robert is way to tense and not letting @SandraLeeMD help him relax a bit with her type of humor. She is hoping he may want to stay enjoy sunny California to possibly get Dr. Umar to be of help. #DrPimplePopper."
