Hey, popaholics, make your Monday a little better by watching this video of Dr. Pimple Popper wrestling what she dubbed the "bowling ball" lipoma out of her patient's back. Dr. Pimple Popper, a.k.a. licensed dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee, wrote in the caption of the video that she hoped to be able to pop the lipoma (a benign tumor made of fat) whole, but alas, it was not to be, because there were too many "fibrous bands" keeping the lipoma in place.

The real popping struggle begins at about 5:48 in the video.

Also, as Dr. Lee explains, the lipoma was not "well-encapsulated," meaning it tore easily, another barrier in the way of removing it as a whole. So she does what she does best—just digs around and starts grabbing out handfuls of the fat, like taking out the innards of a chicken.

According to the video caption on YouTube, the patient wrote to Dr. Lee about a month later, to tell her he was doing well, but that he missed his "built-in pillow" a little bit. Luckily, he has his wife for that now.
