This Patient Can Barely Breathe Through His Nostrils | Dr. Pimple Popper


OKAY, ROSACEA IS A REALLY COMMON
CONDITION THAT OCCURS. THE RARER FORM OF IT
IS WHAT YOU HAVE, WHICH IS RHINOPHYMA. RHINOPHYMA HAPPENS MORE
IN MEN THAN WOMEN, AND IT HAPPENS PREDOMINANTLY
ON THE NOSE. BUT IT CAUSES
A THICKENING OF THE SKIN. I KNOW I HAVE
A PRETTY SERIOUS CASE. DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU CAN
GET A LOT OF THIS ROUGHNESS? UM… WELL, LET ME TAKE
A LOOK AT YOU HERE, FIRST. CAN YOU TAKE YOUR GLASSES OFF
FOR ME? PATRICK HAS A VERY SEVERE FORM
OF RHINOPHYMA. IN FACT,
IT IS THE MOST ADVANCED CASE THAT I’VE EVER SEEN. SO, BEFORE I CAN BE SURE
THAT I CAN TREAT HIM, I NEED TO TAKE
A REALLY GOOD LOOK. YOU CAN SEE
HOW YOUR NOSTRILS ARE PRETTY NORMAL HERE, AND THEN IT JUST CHANGES
RIGHT HERE. KIND OF CAUSING THEM TO
CLOSE DOWN A LITTLE BIT, HUH? I MEAN,
IT’S VIRTUALLY CLOSED. THE WEIGHT OF THIS — THIS IS, LIKE,
WEIGHING DOWN ON YOU. Patrick: EVERYBODY ASKS ME
IF I CAN BREATHE. I THINK I CAN BREATHE, BUT IT’S PROBABLY NOT —
YEAH, YOU CAN. BUT I BET YOU…
IT’S NOT AS GOOD. YEAH, I BET YOU
WHEN YOU REMOVE THAT, YOU’RE GONNA BE LIKE,
“WOW, NOW I CAN BREATHE.” AFTER EXAMINING PATRICK, MY MAIN CONCERN IS
THE COMPRESSION OF HIS NOSTRILS. SO NOT ONLY IS THIS
A COSMETIC CONCERN, IT IS ABSOLUTELY
A FUNCTIONAL CONCERN. AND, SO, I THINK
THAT’S THE FIRST PLACE THAT I SHOULD TREAT HIM. I THINK
THAT I CAN DO SOMETHING TO MAKE THIS BETTER
FOR YOU. BUT I THINK
I SAW ON YOUR CHART YOU’RE ON A BLOOD THINNER.
YEAH. WERE YOU ABLE TO STOP IT? SOMEWHAT? I HAVEN’T STOPPED IT,
BUT I WENT TO HALF A DOSE. ♪♪ THIS IS AN UNEXPECTED PROBLEM. MY STAFF ROUTINELY
CALLS MY PATIENTS BEFORE ANY VISITS OR ANY PROCEDURES
THAT WE’RE DOING TO MAKE SURE
THAT THEY’RE PREPARED. AND MY STAFF TOLD PATRICK TO PLEASE STOP
HIS BLOOD THINNERS. BUT FOR SOME REASON, HE DECIDED TO JUST
DECREASE THE DOSE TO HALF, AND THAT’S REALLY
NOT GOOD ENOUGH. I’M WORRIED ABOUT THE FACT THAT
IF WE TREAT THIS ENTIRE NOSE, IT WILL JUST BLEED AND BLEED
AND NOT STOP. MY MAIN CONCERN IS
I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOUR CLOTTING ABILITY IS
IN YOUR BLOOD. PATRICK
IS ON A BLOOD THINNER BECAUSE OF A PREVIOUS HISTORY OF DEVELOPING BLOOD CLOTS
IN HIS LEG WHILE HE WAS IN THE HOSPITAL. SO, SINCE THEN, HE HAS BEEN ON A LOW-DOSE
BLOOD THINNER INDEFINITELY. I THINK
IT’S TOO DANGEROUS FOR US TO BE
TREATING YOUR NOSE AND FOR YOU
TO POTENTIALLY BLEED LIKE THAT AND WE CAN’T CONTROL IT. YEAH,
THAT WOULDN’T BE GOOD. NO,
THAT WOULDN’T BE GOOD. IT COULD BE DANGEROUS, THE FACT THAT
PATRICK IS ON BLOOD THINNER AND FOR ME TO DO THIS PRETTY EXTENSIVE OPERATION
ON HIS NOSE. I KNOW HE’S NOT GONNA BE HAPPY
ABOUT THE FACT THAT I DON’T REALLY WANT
TO TREAT HIS ENTIRE NOSE TODAY. BUT HIS SAFETY COMES FIRST. I’M NOT GONNA DO ANYTHING
THAT’S HARMFUL FOR YOU. SO, LET ME TRY
TO FIGURE THIS OUT HERE A LITTLE BIT, OKAY?
OKAY. ♪♪ UH, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. I TRAVELED ALL THIS DISTANCE TO GET THE PROCEDURE DONE
IF I COULD. ♪♪

  1. can u tell me why does je take blood thinners, I don t understand very well cause english is not my tongue language… he takes for his noise the blood thinners?? thanks

  2. I don't get why he didn't stop the blood thinners. In order for her to have requested him to stop taking them she had to talk to his doctor to make sure it was safe for him to be off of the med for so many days. His doctor must have said it was fine otherwise they wouldn't have told him to stop taling them. His own fault and I can't feel bad for him.

  3. I'm over her complaining about the size of my nose and then I come across this video.. my heart goes out to this guy….wow everything is about perspective

  4. Why do those american idiots wait so long to treat such an issue? do they gotta spend their lifesavings on it or something what the hell…

  5. You are an idiot,you were told to stop the blood thinners and you decided not to and you still expected her to treat you, idiot

  6. I watched that episode. He eventually got his procedure. He only delayed things by failure to follow pretty specific instructions to stop taking blood thinners and aspirin.

  7. This guy has no one to blame but himself. Next time do what the doctor tells you to do. He was specifically told to STOP taking the blood thinners and instead because he knew better decided to only lower the dosage.

  8. The people talking about touching his nose with no gloves….it's not contagious ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ and it's clean, unbroken skin. Grow up.

  9. Please make tlc availible At europe too. I am from germany and i can only watch the parts you put on YouTube because the website does not work international

  10. Iโ€™m no joking or being mean when I ask this Who beat this old guyโ€™s Noise oh buddy looks like it was hit with a meat hammer!

  11. People here be yelling at him for not stopping blood thinners.

    Do yโ€™all know that if you stop blood thinners it can and will kill you?

    If you want to bash this guy, bash him for not meeting with his PCP and talking to them about the operation he wanted to get done. Iโ€™m sure something couldโ€™ve been done to let him have the surgery if he just reached out to his PCP.

  12. He's upset because he traveled so far but he didn't do what she said …STOP taking your blood thinner….he was supposed to talk to his doctor and stop them and go back on them when it was done …so he can't get mad at her…

  13. Think about it if he had to travel a long way, sitting for a long time, it may have been dangerous for him if he had not just reduced his blood thinners. Have a little compassion!

  14. Stop posting such unfeeling comments about what this guy should have done to have his treatment..he is feeling embarrassed sad and probably has a degree of anxiety..give him a break! Poor guy .

  15. I feel bad for him cause he didnโ€™t really have a choice. Like a specialist probably told him to not stop being on a blood thinner because itโ€™s a health risk, but he has to stop being on them to get the nose procedure done. How hard and sad must that be…

  16. You don't know what to say???!! How bout' next time I will LISTEN to instructions and STOP TAKING MY BLOOD THINNER and don't waste Dr. Pimple Popper's time and viewers time and other patients who could've had their appointment today because THEY FOLLOWED DIRECTIONS!!! How about saying that???!!

  17. So many people are commenting about him stopping the blood thinners without understanding the full extent of "why" he needed to stop taking them for a short period of time.

    I once developed a DVT and PE prior to being pregnant with my son. During my pregnancy my OB put me on a therapeutic dosage of blood thinners that I had to give myself via injections twice a day. The day before I delivered my son my OB had me to stop taking the blood thinners so that I wouldn't bleed even more and lose too much blood. After he was born I was back on the blood thinners the same day and stayed on them until my specialist released me from having to take them any longer. Thankfully in my case I don't have a life long condition that would keep me on anticoagulant.

    If Dr. Lee asked him to stopped taking them for a short period of time he should have/could have cleared this with his doctor as well before the procedure. Dr. Lee did the right thing by not treating him while he still had the medication in his system and putting his life at risk.

  18. He should has spoken with his doctor and had his blood thinner stopped. He should have been honest about his medication status.

  19. I am viewing this episode right now. You made a comment that you and Jeff work as one. This is true! Two excellent beings, minds, functioning as one. Thanks to both of you for sharing your exceptional skills!

  20. I love you Dr pimple Popper I want you every night with my dad TLC said that coming that you're coming soon but it doesn't I stay at the middle of the night to see your things what you do๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•โฃโฃ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“

  21. My Grandma was on blood thinners. She had a tiny scratch that would have barely bled for a normal person and it took hours to stop. It's serious when they tell you you can't take blood thinners before surgery!

  22. I can get of blood thinners with a whole foods, plant based diet. Also it is possible that his rosecea will heal (partly).
