Dermatologist Sandra Lee, often known as 'Dr Pimple Popper,' is an expert in popping even the most stubborn pilar cysts. In a new Season 8 preview, Dr Lee encounters an iguana-wrangler with huge growths on his head.

Dr Lee has no qualms about diving in scalpel-first to deal with head-covering inflammatory lumps, intractable lifetime rashes covering the patient's whole body, and even a set of massive turtle-shell-textured mounds that just might be the world's largest-ever genital warts — or even worse. Dr Lee approaches every new issue with a smile and a passion for her patients and their skin, from hundreds of severe, arm-covering xanthomas to fuzzy-jelly-feeling unexplained back lumps. For those who have given up hope of ever living a normal life, 'Dr Pimple Popper' is there to help.

Dr Lee checks out iguana wrangler Madison's head growths in the third episode of 'Dr Pimple Popper.' Dr Lee says in the preview clip that she has never met an iguana wrangler in person, but we're quite sure the growths on his head are nothing new to her. Madison can be seen feeling the scalpel on his head as she attempts to tame the lumps. Can Dr Lee help Madison get rid of his head bumps just like Aimee and Michael from earlier this season?

Dr Lee can squeeze any blocked hair follicle, from a booming party with five cysts to a little pilar cyst shaped like a "boba." So it's no wonder that, in a fresh new preview clip for the forthcoming episode, 'Dr Pimple Popper' lives true to her moniker by removing lots of what appear to be large pilar cysts off a patient's scalp in one piece. TLC teased the clip on Twitter, in which she removes cyst after cyst from her patient's scalp with a scalpel, her fingers, and even a syringe. Dr Lee would make every effort, with her assistant by her side, to extract the cysts completely intact.

Pilar cysts are slow-growing lumps filled with fluid or pus that emerge from hair follicles, generally on the scalp. While cysts are normally not harmful, they can produce pain and soreness. Because cysts tend to regrow, Dr Lee must carefully evaluate the incision site to ensure that the whole sac of skin harboring the cyst has been removed. Cysts might reappear if the sacs are not completely disposed of.
