- Dr. Lee compares the cyst’s contents to “movie theater butter,” with many fans agreeing that the gunk looks like questionable popcorn topping.

Get ready to squirt on all that extra butter, pop(corn) lovers. In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—pops a cyst that overflows with oily, buttery contents. Your movie-time snack will never look the same again.
In the quick clip, Dr. Lee punctures the buried cyst with a surgical blade, then squeezes the growth with a firm hand. With little struggle or trouble, a river of oily, buttery yellow contents comes flowing out of the mass.
“Like the movie theater butter,” Dr. Lee captioned the video. And it truly looks like the oil-based fake butter you’d get from a cinema.
“The fact that it actually looks like butter is frighteningly awesome,” a fan commented on the video, further proving the disturbing resemblance. Another added, “No! Don’t ruin popcorn for me.” Sorry. It happened.
This particular type of cyst is called a steatocystoma. Steatocystomas are small, benign lumps that are filled with sebum, a yellowish, oily substance that helps lubricate the hair, skin, and nails, according to the National Institute of Health.
