Grab the Toast, Because Dr. Pimple Popper Has Some Buttery Steatocystomas For You


• Dr. Sandra Lee, MD-aka Dr. Pimple Popper-treats a patient with steatocystomas on their back in a new YouTube video.
• Steatocystomas are noncancerous cysts filled with butter-resembling sebum.
• Steatocystoma multiplex is a skin condition associated with having a bunch of steatocystomas.

Dr. Pimple Popper’s newest YouTube video is called “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter,” and honestly, after watching it, we can’t believe we’re not screaming!

In a new YouTube video posted Monday, Dr. Sandra Lee, MD goes to so-called “Steatocystoma City”-in other words, a patient with a back full of cysts. The dermatologist (and recent Critics’ Choice Award winner) compares the steatocystomas to butter because of the creamy, off-white goop that comes out of ’em.

It’s hard to predict exactly what’s going to come out of each steatocystoma. Some of them emit liquid-y contents, while others produce more solid spirals of gunk. But you know what they say: Variety is the spice of life!

“Fascinating as usual,” one fan commented on YouTube. “I always find myself cheering when you finally get the slippery little suckers out!”
