A woman finally has her massive mango-sized ‘love handle’ lipoma removed in The Bad Skin Clinic.
Tonight’s episode of the show, which airs on Quest Red, focuses on Rosie, 신사역피부과 from the UK, who for the past 10 years has has been living with an enormous, melon-sized lipoma on the side of her waist.
As she admits, the massive bulge has taken its toll on her self-esteem and has stopped her doing the things she enjoys.
‘I do get paranoid, you can see people looking at you.
I used to be a social butterfly, now I just hide in the corner,’ she says. ‘It affects my self-confidence, I just think people will be looking at me and staring at it, going ‘oh what’s wrong with her? God help her.’

Visibly protruding from her waistline, the bump has been a major cause of concern for Rosie’s health over the years.
‘So when I first discovered it many years ago, everybody thinks a lump is the big C, you know, so it did really scare me,’ she says, revealing that at first she thought the lump was a lot more serious.
‘But the doctor’s got an MRI and that clarified that it wasn’t, that it was a large lipoma.’
Over the past decade, Rosie’s husband Martin admits that he’s seen a change in his wife, 신사역피부과 as her confidence has noticeably dipped as the lipoma has grown bigger.
‘Seeing how she’s changed so much over the years, it’s been difficult, it’s been hard,’ he says.
‘Her confidence has dropped an awful lot. Definitely in the last five years it’s really started to get bigger. It’s really just ballooned, and for me that’s got scary.’
