Plot Synopsis

DR. PIMPLE POPPER is a one-hour reality series that follows renowned dermatological surgeon Dr. Sandra Lee, as she treats various eye-catching dermatological problems in hopes of allowing her patients to reclaim their lives, free of disguise and embarrassment. Some of the cases featured this season include a mobility-inducing elephant-like skin condition, a discouraging lump and, protruding veins, tumors and cysts that hinder their daily lives and confidence. TLC first aired DR. PIMPLE POPPER as a one-hour special Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, followed by the official series premiere six months later on Wednesday, July 11 at 10:04pm. In the series opener, "The Lipoma Whisperer," Melissa has tried to cover a huge lipoma with a sweatshirt for years, Tyler's fear of cancer has kept him from having his huge head lumps diagnosed, Tahj is covered in painful boils, and Amber has ear keloids that have taken control of her life.

"DR. PIMPLE POPPER provides a complete window into my world as a busy dermatologist. The TLC viewer goes on a journey with my patients during this series; first you meet the patients in their hometown, and see how their skin condition affects their life and the people around them. You understand how devastating their condition really is, how it affects their everyday life, and how they interact with others and the world. I evaluate every patient and decide on a treatment course to help their skin conditions -- and afterward, we see how we have really transformed their lives!" said Dr. Lee.
On Wednesday, August 15, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, TLC premiered "An American Tail," the season finale of DR. PIMPLE POPPER. Taylor has a large bump at the base of her spine that is far more dangerous than she realizes. John jokes about hip lump, but turns out it's no laughing matter. Noelle had her ears stretched as a teenager, but now wants them repaired.
