Holy molar! In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—pops a cyst located on the corner of a man’s mouth. And what comes out of the growth may just remind you of a monstrous tooth.
The cyst in question is located right at the corner of the patient’s mouth, making it a precarious spot. Dr. Lee makes an incision into the growth, loosens the cyst with surgical snippers, then gives it a good squeeze.
“I’m squeezing your cheek like grandma does,” Dr. Lee says to the patient.
The famed derm is able to force out some white gunky contents from deep within the growth. This isn’t the dentist, but you wouldn’t know it by watching this clip.
“It looks like a big tooth,” one fan commented on the video. It does indeed, but thankfully this isn’t an ingrown molar shooting through the patient’s lip.
The cyst featured in this video is likely an epidermoid cyst, which contain a collection of wet dead skin cells and keratin. This type of cyst can occur on the face, neck and body, including the cheek.
