• In a new Instagram post, Dr. Pimple Popper posted a #TBT with a favorite co-star.
• Momma Squishy is a reoccurring patient who has steatocystoma, a genetic condition that causes cysts to form across her body.
• In the video, dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee, MD, pops multiple buttery pimples and finds a real gusher.
There aren’t many reoccurring co-stars in Dr. Pimple Popper’s countless Instagram and YouTube videos. A half-covered face or a close-up of a back appears for the minutes or seconds of a video’s duration and maybe a voice discloses some career goals to Dr. Lee or dissertates on the key characteristics of a true New England lobster bisque as the TLC host tears out a cyst or obliterates blackheads.
But then there is “Momma Squishy,” a patient who has been in a long stream of Dr. Pimple Popper videos going back to at least 2016. Never seen in full, she is a sweet, probably middle-aged woman with an assortment of cysts on her body and boundless patience for Lee’s poking, prodding, and pressure.
Today on Instagram, Lee offered a #TBT to her third session with Momma Squishy. Lee uses her comedone extractor to loosen buttery goo from Momma Squishy’s back and finds a real gusher. “Oh, you do, you have some cysts back here,” she exclaims. It’s like doing a rewatch of the Breaking Bad pilot and seeing the look on Walt’s face when he sees Jesse Pinkman sneaking out of a meth cook sight in episode one. You think: Oh, things that begin with this.
The video notes that Momma Squishy has a case of steatocystoma, a condition that is likely genetic and characterized by multiple benign cysts across the body.
The #TBT is a window back into a simpler point of Dr. Pimple Poppa’s videography, when gushing whiteheads were enough to satisfy Popaholics. These days, Lee ups the ante by wrestling organ-sized lymphomas or draining a sewer of abscess fluid.
