Cholesterol in skin of eyelids

Xanthelasma are yellow plaques of cholesterol in the skin of the eyelids. They occur most commonly near the inner, or nose side, of the eyelids, more often on the upper lid than the lower lid. Although not harmful or painful, these minor growths may be disfiguring and can be removed by a excision of the skin and suture. If large, a skin graft may be required.


This may be done with local anaesthetic injection in the rooms or in day surgery with local anaesthetic and intravenous sedation (sleepy and relaxed but not general anaesthetic).
