Xanthelasma treatment

The xanthelasmas are fat and cholesterol deposits that appear around the eyelids, most often in the area near the tear duct.

Yellowish plates are formed and are considered benign lesions located in the skin without affecting the eye orbits.


How do they manifest?

The symptoms are merely cosmetic. Their thickness and yellow colour give an unpleasant eye contour appearance.

What is their treatment?

The most common treatment is surgery due to the fact that they have a certain thickness and depth into the skin, often making laser treatment inappropriate.

In certain cases, due to the size and shape, the use of skin grafts may be required.

Surgery is performed with a minimally invasive technique, like the brow lift, under local anaesthesia with sedation, on an ambulatory basis, making hospitalization of the patient unnecessary. The patient will be able to go straight home, from where they can follow the indications of the oculoplastic ophthalmologist.

Both the surgical and non-surgical techniques we apply are mildly invasive, painless, and provide a fast recovery. The results are spectacular, natural and permanent.
