What is Xanthelasma Removal?

Fatty deposits in the eyelids (Xanthelasma) are due to cholesterol accumulation within the skin. The most effective treatment involves removing the affected tiny strip of skin under local anaesthetic.

What does the treatment for Xanthelasma Removal involve?

Surgery to remove fatty xanthelasma of the eyelids is accomplished under local anaesthetic. The eyelid is numbed gently and then the affected area is removed carefully under magnification. The wound is then closed with hair’s breadth absorbable stitches.

The local anaesthetic does cause some swelling so it is best to arrange a lift home (in case the swelling interferes with vision). Most normal activities may be resumed immediately but avoiding straining will help reduce bruising and promote rapid healing.

The eyelid heals within a few days and within a week or two the tiny stitches will fall out leaving a nicely healed eyelid.
