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.

The second season of DR. PIMPLE POPPER premiered on Thursday, January 3, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT on TLC, immediately following a one-hour special:

"Countdown to the New Season" (8pm, new special): With a sneak peek at the new season -- Belinda's lipoma limits her mobility. Nicole won't get married until her arm pit lump is removed. Adela's body is covered in fibromas. Nick tried to remove a lipoma at home and now needs Dr. Lee's help.

"Nose No Bounds" (9pm, Season 2 premiere): April is covered in bumps that have disfigured her arms. Genner has flown all the way from the Philippines to have Dr. Lee help with his bumpy nose. Chris suffers from psoriasis that nearly covers his body and a bump on his head.

Season 3 of DR. PIMPLE POPPER premiered on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT on TLC. This season, Dr. Lee tackles her biggest cases yet including one so extensive, she must partner with a doctor to perform a procedure at a nearby hospital; a patient with a black mass that runs a high risk it could be life threatening and a patient with a mystery case from the very first episode returns, with the growth as big as it was when we first met him. In the season opener, "Sleepless in Steatocystoma," Jen has substantial growths on her ears that cause her depression, pain, and vertigo. Juliet is under emotional distress because of the bumps all over her neck and chest. Gerald has a mysterious, kiwi-size lump on his middle finger.
