Dr Pimple Popper scoops 'messiest lipoma ever' from patient's back – 'head behind his head'

Dr Pimple Popper has removed her fair share of messy cysts and lipomas in her lifetime, but Paul’s back lipoma is her messiest ever!

The TLC show is a dream for popaholics who can’t get enough of the pops and squeezes of substances pouring out of patients’ bumps, and Paul’s may be the best one yet. As we eagerly wait for a new series of Dr Pimple Popper to be announced, let’s throw it back to Paul’s ‘messy’ back lipoma.

Dr Pimple Popper patient Paul has a ‘huge’ back lipoma

Paul, 51, has an enormous lipoma on his neck, which started when he was 15/16 years old. He says it was just a “little knot” back then, which just looked like a pimple.

However, 18 years ago, the patient got put on steroids to help with pain from a nerve issue. When he got put on the medication to eliminate the pain, his neck lump continued to grow.

The steroids helped his other issues and therefore, Paul stopped taking them. However, this didn’t stop the growth of his lump which continued to get bigger.

He says his lump was the size of a softball four years ago, but has probably tripled since then. Doctors in the past have shrugged it off, so Paul is now visiting Dr Pimple Popper’s office in hopes he can have it gone for good.

Dr Lee takes a look at Paul’s ‘head behind his head’

As he heads to see Dr Sandra Lee, she explains how nerve steroid injections could cause some changes in the surface of the skin, but not a bump as big as that.

Although not 100% sure, the doctor thinks Paul’s “head behind his head” is in fact a lipoma, and as always, is down to get him to the operating table.

As expected, the patient is nervous but is also ready for his huge lump to be gone once and for all.

The removal is the ‘messiest ever’

Sandra starts by making an incision and can tell it’s a lipoma straight away from the fat pocket area.

She then begins pulling out the lipoma, but as it’s been there for 10 years, of course, its proving difficult, and doesn’t want to leave.

The doctor and her assistant then begin ‘scooping’ the lipoma out, but it’s not leaving easily as it breaks into little pieces that are going everywhere. “It’s official, messiest lipoma ever,” she says.

“You know how you pull the cheese off the top of pizza? That’s what it looks like, we’re taking the mozerlla out now,” she says. Nice!

Watch Paul’s messy lipoma removal here. Warning contains scenes some viewers may find uncomfortable to watch.

Finally, the doctor does what she does best and it’s all gone. The patient is ecstatic with the results, and says he can’t believe he actually had a neck!

He can’t express how grateful he is for Dr Lee, and says it’s like he’s been “reborn again”.
