Dr Sandra Lee was back just in time for Christmas to spread some cheer this holiday with the seasons’ squeezings. The show was filmed before the pandemic and Dr Lee further confirmed it with her tweet, “A little known fact: this holiday episode was filmed right BEFORE the pandemic!” So if you saw the doctor hugging her patients, don’t be squeezy.

Right when Dr Lee was wondering if she was on Santa Claus’ naughty list since she was getting only difficult lipoma surgeries, a Santa appeared in her chamber. It looked like Santa was troubled himself and sought the doctor’s help. In fact, it was a make or break moment for the Santa because if for some reason she wasn’t able to operate on him, he might not be able to get back to work as Santa that he had been doing for the past 30 years and greet all the excited children waiting for Santa Claus. He said the kids looking at his lump and asking him questions about it made him uncomfortable and he didn’t want to break the illusion that they had of a perfect Santa.
After having a look at his diagnosis Dr Lee confirmed he was good to operate. It was a 7cm-long mass on the left side of his throat. Dr Lee informed him it was a delicate area and once opened if she found it out to be entangled with some veins, she wouldn't be able to operate on him.
Once the incision was made on the lump Dr Lee and her assistant found out his cyst was intact within the white membrane, which was a good sign otherwise it would have squirted all over. Instead of the stubborn lipoma that she had been dealing with all-day. Santa’s lump came out like an egg, a huge dinosaur's egg. Not being able to keep her excitement inside the doctor after she stitched him up, cut the egg cyst anyway to see what was inside it. White grainy mush came out of it and Santa himself was grossed out. But to Dr Lee it was like oatmeal that needed some cinnamon on top.
