'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 8: Can Dr Lee help Eric in getting rid of the enormous growth on his butt?
Dr Lee takes a patient from Hawaii who is seeking treatment for a 'big island of butt lipomas'
Renowned dermatologist Dr Sandra Lee is entrusted with removing severe growths from her patients' skin so they can strive to restore their lives. 'Dr Pimple Popper', one of the most well-known medical series on TLC, is back with Season 8 and the season premiere features a man with a lipoma on his butt.
Dr Lee originally achieved popularity on social media by exposing her dermatological world, amassing a following of "popaholics" online. This drew the attention of TLC, which gave Dr Lee her own show. Fans can see her handle everything from basic (but intriguing) pimple extractions to complex surgical operations, thanks to the series. Dr Lee will take on a massive growth on a man's behind in the season premiere, airing on July 13.
Dr Lee gets a visit from Eric, who has traveled all the way from Maui, Hawaii. He flew into the colder weather in the hopes of receiving Dr Lee's help in removing a large growth from his nether region. Eric tells Dr Lee he has a lipoma on his buttock. The doctor then inquires whether he is certain and if he has previously been diagnosed. Eric informs her of the lipoma and adds that he has had it for over five years and is finally seeking to get rid of it altogether.
Dr Lee asks to examine Eric since he didn't appear to have anything alarming coming out of his behind. She also asks Eric whether he has visited any other doctors before her and what they have said about his condition. Eric recalls seeing a couple of doctors who prescribed him prednisolone and assured him that it will go away. Dr Lee was taken aback when she learned that Eric had been prescribed prednisolone, which only helps with inflammation. Eric claims that his issue is not an inflammation because it does not feel irritated or seem red. The medications couldn't work because it was only a bump and not an inflammation. Dr Lee also learns that no other doctor has ever offered to remove it.
Dr Lee examines Eric's condition closely and concludes that it seems to be a lipoma because of the weight. The bump appears to be big, but Dr Lee points out that it does not look to be attached to him. It seemed to have extra skin that was stretched out. Given this, Dr Lee informs Eric that she may be able to assist him in removing it. The doctor is relieved that Eric is a skinny man with some sinew and little fat in the subcutaneous layer, as she believes it will come out easily.
Find out if Dr Lee can assist Eric in getting rid of his bump and walking around with the tush he deserves. Season 8 of 'Dr Pimple Popper' premieres on TLC on July 13 at 9 pm.
