Xanthelasma Removal in Portsmouth

Xanthelasma forms due to cholesterol accumulation within the skin, resulting in yellowish, waxy deposits on your eyelids and surrounding skin.

The most effective treatment for Xanthelasma involves removing the affected strip of skin under local anaesthetic. To ensure your peace of mind and safety, I perform this procedure under magnification and close the wound with ultra-thin absorbable stitches.

What does the treatment for Xanthelasma Removal involve?

The first step in Xanthelasma removal involves numbing the region around the eyelid using a local anaesthetic. The affected area is then carefully removed under magnification.

The minor wound created is sealed using micro-absorbable stitches, which dissolve naturally over time. As the local anaesthetic may cause some swelling, it is advisable to arrange transport home post-procedure. Most normal activities can be resumed immediately, but avoiding straining will help reduce bruising and promote rapid healing.
