Dr. Lee Examines Barbara’s “Upside Down Heart” | Dr. Pimple Popper


[KNOCKING] Hi, Dr. Lee. Hi, how are you? It’s nice to meet you. It’s nice to meet you too. Welcome. Thank you. What are you coming here for? You look pretty darn good to me. I actually have a
lipoma on my back. And I’ve had it for
about nine years. All right. And I was actually a
much bigger girl then. I’ve lost– You look teeny tiny now. I’m not teeny tiny, but
I’ve lost 130 pounds– – Wow–
– –in a year and a half. –that’s wonderful. Yes, but the lipoma
didn’t go away. Yeah, they usually don’t. And I still feel like there’s
one thing that’s on my back. Yes, I see what you’re saying. You want to get that
last thing off your back, literally, right? I really do. OK. Well then let’s take
a look here and see what you’re talking about. All right. Oh, I see your
little friend here. What kind of work do you do? I’m a teacher. I’m a second grade teacher. OK, and I see it’s
kind of in the middle upper back so I can [INAUDIBLE] It is. In fact, I had a child ask
me if I was a hunchback once. I was like, no, I just
have a lump on my back. Oh, man. Do you mind if I
lift your shirt up– – No, go ahead.
– –and take a look at it? It’s like you have
an upside down heart. It is. Or a butt cheek. Yeah, actually
yeah, you’re right. It could be a butt cheek too. What I really like about
Barbara is her fun personality. She really likes to joke a lot. But I can tell that
this lipoma really does bother her deep down inside. Interestingly, lipomas
don’t change size according to weight gain or weight loss. They really are
independent of your weight. So it can be frustrating when
somebody loses a lot of weight and they see that their lipoma
has stayed the same size. You know, I’m a little
concerned about this lipoma because of its unique shape. It’s sort of like this
upside down heart, and it’s right in the
center of her spine. It’s quite large. Why is it this shape? Is it trying to turn a corner
and avoid some structure?
