The TikTok is similar to the content fans crave from Dr. Pimple Popper and Masters had a pretty extreme reaction. Unable to look away, Masters looked completely grossed out as the doctor uses a scalpel to expertly dig away at the lesion on the bottom of a patient’s foot. While the TikTok itself is hard to watch, Masters’ commentary makes for a hilarious moment, keeping fans engaged.

“I just want to know how do people get that on the bottom of their feet,” Masters said, grasping her neck with a look of disgust. “You gotta scrape that sh*t off? Oh, that looks like it hurts! Holy sh*t!” Masters’ reaction was shared on Instagram next to the actual surgical removal.

The physician explained how the procedure worked as the graphic video showed that surface skin cells must first be removed. “Look how he’s scraping it with that blade and he’s slicing, eww,” Masters winced.

Meanwhile, the scalpel is now digging around the lesion in an effort to remove it from its roots. But Masters is still flummoxed. “How do you get that? What is that? What is it? And I don’t want it,” Masters exclaimed.

“Oh, it looked painful!” Masters added. “Godd*amn!” Now Masters’ hand is over her mouth as the surgery gets more invasive. The physician explained in the TikTok that he is carefully going over the edges of the lesion with the blade. Masters definitely thought the procedure had to have hurt. But added that once the lesion is removed the patient certainly had to feel better.

The physician presents the removed wart to the camera, which appeared to be a large chunk of skin. “Ew look at it,” Masters said wide-eyed. “That was in her foot.

Dr. Pimple Popper’s seborrheic keratosis video shows how easily the lesion is removed

Dr. Pimple Popper, aka Dr. Sandra Lee, demonstrated what a seborrheic keratosis removal looked like in early Jan. “Patient came in for a check up and my husband, Dr. Rebish found a benign (non-cancerous) Seborrheic keratosis AND a blackhead trying to hide out! Got ya mister,” Lee captioned a video of her colleague doing the procedure on Instagram.

Unlike the TikTok Masters watched, the physician first numbs the area and then dives right in with the scalpel, cutting along the borders of the lesion. The black lesion is then simply plucked from the patient’s skin. “Popped it right out,” the doctor exclaimed.

Lee has also impressed fans with her steatocystoma removal. “Steatocystomas typically contain a syrup-like, yellowish, odorless, oily material,” she shared in an Instagram video. “If they are inflamed or infected by bacteria, they can develop a foul odor and can be a definite source of social isolation.” She hinted that steatocystoma can sometimes hide underneath the armpits.
