This Man’s Bumps on His Nose are Becoming a Burden | Dr. Pimple Popper


EVERY TIME
I WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, I’M VERY MUCH A MIX
EMOTION OF ANGER AND SADNESS BECAUSE OF THIS THING
ON MY NOSE. -GO AHEAD AND HAVE A SEAT —
-THANK YOU. …AND DR. LEE
WILL BE RIGHT IN, OKAY? -THANK YOU.
-YOU’RE WELCOME. HAVING THIS BURDEN IN MY LIFE,
I’M FALLING APART INSIDE. ♪♪ OKAY, GIRLS.
I’M READY FOR MY NEXT PATIENT. WHO DO YOU GOT? WE HAVE A GENTLEMAN
FROM THE PHILIPPINES, AND HE HAS SOME BUMPS
ON HIS NOSE. HE CAME ALL THE WAY
FROM THE PHILIPPINES? -YEAH.
-REALLY? YEP, JUST TO SEE YOU. THAT’S A LONG WAY TO GO
FOR BUMPS ON THE NOSE. -YEAH.
-IT’S PRETTY PROMINENT? THEY’RE PRETTY PROMINENT.
YEAH. ALL RIGHT.
I’M GONNA GO TAKE A LOOK. HE’S IN ROOM —
WHAT ROOM IS HE IN? -ROOM SIX.
-OKAY. THANK YOU. -ALL RIGHT.
-YOU’RE WELCOME. ♪♪ -HI. IS IT GENNER?
-HI. YEAH.
IS THAT HOW YOU SAY YOUR NAME? YES. -HI. I’M SANDRA, DR. LEE.
-NICE TO MEET YOU, DOCTOR. NICE TO MEET YOU.
WELCOME. YOU CAME FROM PRETTY FAR,
I HEAR. YEAH, FROM THE PHILIPPINES. I FEEL HONORED THAT YOU CAME
SO FAR TO SEE ME. YEAH. AND I THINK I KNOW WHAT
WE’RE COMING HERE FOR, HUH? -YES.
-THIS GROWTH ON YOUR NOSE. -YES.
-HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD THIS FOR? I BELIEVE IT STARTED
LAST 2004. 14 YEARS AGO OR SO. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS
JUST AN ORDINARY PIMPLE. -AND IT JUST KEPT COMING, HUH?
-YEAH. DO YOU FEEL LIKE
IT’S STILL GROWING, OR IT’S KIND OF STAYED
ABOUT THE SAME? YES, IT KEEPS ON GROWING. OKAY.
YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS CALLED? -NO.
-RHINOPHYMA. -RHINOPHYMA.
-YEAH. RHINOPHYMA IS, LIKE,
A THICKENING OF THE SKIN, IN PARTICULAR ON THE NOSE. IT’S ACTUALLY AN EXTREME FORM
OF ROSACEA. OFTENTIMES, WHAT YOU’LL
GET WITH ROSACEA IS YOU’LL GET THE REDNESS — -YES.
-…AND YOU’LL FLUSH. -DO YOU DO THAT?
-YEAH. -YOU DO FLUSH AND SOMETIMES —
-YEAH, HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. AND THEN THERE’S ALSO PIMPLES
THAT KIND OF ASSOCIATE WITH ROSACEA,
LIKE LITTLE BREAKOUTS. THOSE ARE THE TWO
OTHER STAGES OF ROSACEA. THE THIRD STAGE, THE MOST
SEVERE FORM OF ROSACEA IS WHAT YOU HAVE, RHINOPHYMA. GENNER HAS REALLY AN INTERESTING
PRESENTATION OF RHINOPHYMA. HE’S JUST SORT OF HAD THICKENING
ON THE TIP OF HIS NOSE, AND IT’S SORT OF
JUST PILED UP THERE. IT JUST LOOKS LIKE HE CHEWED
A WHOLE PACK OF BUBBLE GUM AND JUST SLAPPED IT ON HIS NOSE, AND NOW WE JUST WANT
TO TAKE THAT OFF. I’VE DONE
QUITE A FEW OF THESE WHERE WE REMOVE
THE RHINOPHYMA, AND THAT ENTAILS USING, LIKE,
A HOT WIRE LOOP TO, LIKE,
RESCULPT YOUR NOSE. RISKS ARE SCARRING,
INFECTION, YOU KNOW, MAYBE SCARRING
CAN DISTORT A LITTLE
OF YOUR NOSTRIL. GENNER IS PART ASIAN,
AND BEING OF ASIAN DECENT, WE TEND TO HAVE
A LITTLE DARKER SKIN COLOR. WHEN YOU HAVE DARKER SKIN,
YOU HAVE A POTENTIAL TO SCAR WITH A PERMANENT
LIGHTER SKIN COLOR. SO I REALLY WANT TO TAKE OFF
JUST AS MUCH AS WE NEED, AND I’M CROSSING MY FINGERS AND HOPING THAT
THIS DOES NOT SCAR WITH A REALLY WHITE
KIND OF COLOR ‘CAUSE THAT COULD BE
JUST AS NOTICEABLE AS HAVING THIS MOUND OF FLESH
ON YOUR NOSE.
