'When Skin Goes Wrong': Gary seeks treatment for his uncountable lipomas, says he wants 'to be normal'
Gary admitted it was hard to be confident with who he was because he was worried someone might question him about the lipomas on his hand
TLC's latest special 'When Skin Goes Wrong' is here to please every fan of 'Dr Pimple Popper'. Four dermatologists came together and allowed the cameras to follow them as they treat their patients. In the latest episode (November 19), Gary came to the clinic to seek help for his uncountable lipomas.
Meeting Dr Adil, Gary explained he had many lipomas that covered all his body. However, the ones that he wanted to remove quickly were the six lipomas that were present on his hand. Gary admitted having so many lipomas, on one hand, affected his life as he was ashamed to wear short sleeves shirts. At the same time, he revealed there were countless times when people asked him what he had. Unfortunately, Gary would often seek to avoid these questions and would settle for wearing long sleeves clothes to avoid any stares. It reached a point that he started wearing long sleeves even in summers.
Gary admitted it was hard to be confident with who he was because he was worried someone might question him about the lipomas on his hand. He went on to add that it had affected his normal life as he was unable to go for a swim. Gary later became emotional and confessed that he just wants to "be normal". Dr Adil assured him that he would remove all the lipomas that were on his hand. Once he made an outline of where they were, Dr Adil started making a small opening to ensure they could come out. He admitted it was satisfying to see the lipomas come out as they often did not pose any problem.
At the same time, Gary decided to watch Dr Adil remove all the lipomas from his hand. He admitted it was a satisfying procedure to watch. One by one Dr Adil removed the lipomas from Gary's hand. The last one posed a bit of trouble as it seemed hesitant to come out. However, Dr Adil finally managed to squeeze it all out. Once all the lipomas were removed, Dr Adil stitched the cuts back. Gary admitted he was happy to see the lipomas gone. A couple of weeks after the procedure, Gary revealed he had started wearing short-sleeved clothes and even went swimming.
'When Skin Goes Wrong' airs on Thursdays at 10 pm ET on TLC.
