This is the disgusting moment a huge blackhead was extracted from a man’s back.
The film shows dermatologist Dr Sandra Lee, famously known as Dr Pimple Popper, injecting fluid into and around the protruding blackhead.
The fluid causes the blackhead to swell up in the middle.
Dr Lee begins talking to her patient, during which time she learns that he does not know how long the blackhead has been on his back.
Dr Sandra Lee, known as Dr Pimple Popper, injects fluid into a huge, benign blackhead on a man’s back – before carrying out a surgical extraction
She tells the patient, ‘Make sure I’m not hurting you.
‘This has been here for a while. It’s stuck on you; it’s dried up.’
The doctor then presses up against the growth – which is a large, benign blackhead – with a blackhead extractor – and pulls out part of the blackhead.
Dr Lee then cuts into the blackhead with a scalpel – and squeezes out a disgusting mound.
The patient says, ‘My girlfriend told me about it a long time ago.’
He explains that he always thought the blackhead was ‘a beauty mark’ or something similar, and that’s why he didn’t bother having it checked out.
Dr Lee pulls out the blackhead, with an exposed hole showing the inside of his skin.
She then takes a tweezer and starts to pull out a long piece of yellow skin.
The doctor explains that the blackhead likely turned into a cyst – and what she’s pulling out is the sac wall, which is skin that has flaked off.

Dr Lee then makes an incision to widen the hole, before extracting puss and hair.
After the procedure is finished, the doctor stitches up the man’s back.
On a nearby table rests the ‘crusty’ blackhead, as well as the flaked off skin.
Dr Lee, who is based at Skin Physicians and Surgeons, in Upland, California, has been a certified dermatologist for 10 years.
But she only became widely known a year ago when she began posting minor operations on social media sites such as YouTube and Instagram.
Now, some of her videos have been viewed by more than six million people.
