Old age normally brings a lot of undesired changes on your body. This sometimes results in your nose, ears, and feet turning enormously big. Although rarely, this age-related enlargement of certain body parts can also affect other, less probable things on your body…your blackheads, for instance.
This is what happened to an 85-year old who had developed a blackhead on her upper back. When she went to a dermatologist to get it extracted, it looked as if it had been set in there for 85 years. In fact, the blackhead had grown enormously. It was dermatologist, Dr. Sandra Lee, also known as “Dr. Pimple Popper,” who had this gigantic blackhead removed. She actually put her specialty to a test by dealing with this case.
She stated that the blackhead was so deeply embedded that it must have been growing for years.
Although the blackhead was huge, the removal procedure went well and she was able to get it out without much difficulty. The old woman who underwent the procedure refused to see the thing extracted from her back. For years she wrongly believed it was just a mole.
This is what Dr. Sandra Lee had to say about future visits that the woman will have to pay:
“We plan to see her again in the near future, and if she doesn’t like the appearance, or if it tends to fill again, we can excise the enlarged pore, and place a couple stitches, so that she replaces the “hole” with a fine line scar.”
