- Dr. Pimple Popper (a.k.a. dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD) removes a large olive-like cyst from a woman’s cheek in her new Instagram video.
- The cyst, which is actually a pilar cyst, is made up of keratin and dead skin cells.
- Pilar cysts typically occur on the face, head, and scalp.
If you’re a seasoned Dr. Pimple Popper watcher, you know pimples can show up pretty much anywhere on your body: shoulders, necks, even foreheads. But Dr. Pimple Popper showed off a cyst with an unusual home today: a woman’s cheek.
I know, a cheek doesn’t sound that unusual, but when you see it, it looks like the woman has a gum ball in her mouth. And honestly, it goes downhill—or uphill, depending on how much you love Dr. Pimple Popper—from there.
In the video, posted to Instagram Friday afternoon, Dr. Pimple goes after a cyst on a woman’s cheek. “This #cheeky cyst is giving stuffed green olive martini vibes,” she wrote in the caption.

The video opens up with the cyst already cut open and Dr. Pimple Popper pushing on it with both of her hands. When she finally realizes she’s not getting anywhere with the cyst, she calls in some reinforcements: her scalpel. “I’m gonna rupture it a little bit here on top,” she tells the patient.
After slicing the cyst, Dr. Pimple Popper starts pushing again, and eventually green-tinted mush starts oozing out. “It’s a cyst!” Dr. Pimple Popper shouts. “Oh, you’re gonna go on our St. Paddy’s Day special. It’s a slight tint of green.”
Dr. Pimple Popper goes on to identify the exact type of cyst—or at least the type of cyst she thinks it is: “I think this is a pilar cyst because the wall is a little thicker,” she says. “It’s the kind you get on your scalp.” (FYI: Pilar cysts are made up of excess keratin and shed skin tissue, are often found on the head, scalp, face, and neck.)
Once the mush comes out (let’s be real, that’s the only way to describe that excess keratin and skin tissue), Dr. Pimple Popper tries to pull out the cyst’s remaining sac, which looks huge, tbh.
The video cuts out before she totally frees it, but damn, I bet that woman feels a million times better with out that “olive” in her cheek anymore.
