Dr. Pimple Popper removed a cyst from under a woman's tattoo without disturbing the design
- In a recent YouTube video, Dr. Pimple Popper treated a woman's cyst that was located underneath her intricate shoulder
- Dr. Pimple Popper made precise incisions and stitches to disturb the tattoo design as little as possible, and said the technique takes years to perfect.
- She also said it was important to remove as much of the sac that held the cyst as she could in order to prevent regrowth.
Skin cysts can form for two reasons, according to Harvard
To start, Lee used a surgical blade to make two small incisions that paralleled the lines of the patient's geometric tattoo. Then, she used scissors to remove excess skin and open the cavity under the skin where the cyst formed.Dr. Pimple Popper squeezed around the incision with her fingers, and an off-white substance that resembled oatmeal came out.
"It's like we're getting out the shower cap now," Lee said of the next step in the treatment process. She was referring to the cyst's sac, which previously held the oatmeal-like substance she squeezed out, but remained attached to the cavity.She used scissors to snip away at the sac, and said it's important to remove as much of it as possible to prevent the growth from reforming. To repair the cavity Lee created, she used stitches to close up the space. This time, due to the patient's tattoo, Lee was careful to match up the line work that was on both sides of the incision.
She told the patient to remove the outermost stitches after seven days to prevent permanent marks that could mess up the look of her tattoo.
