WHAT IS XANTHELASMA?

Xanthelasma are fatty deposits, which tend to form near the inner corners of the upper and lower eyelids. They sometimes appear as a small lump or a flat strip, and are often yellow in colour. They can also appear white in darker skins. They usually appear very rapidly, although in a few cases can grow gradually. If the deposit is a lump, they are called xanthoma; if they are flat, they are xanthelasma. Please note that xanthelasma is not harmful, itchy or painful and xanthelasma removal is purely for aesthetic reasons.

What causes xanthelasma?

About half the people with xanthelasma have high cholesterol. You're more likely to get these growths if you have:
• High LDL ("bad") cholesterol or low HDL ("good") cholesterol
• Inherited high cholesterol (your doctor might call this familial hypercholesterolemia)
• A liver disease called primary biliary cirrhosis, which can raise cholesterol levels

Xanthelasma may be an early warning sign that cholesterol has started to build up in your blood vessels. Over time, it can form hard, sticky gunk called plaque in your arteries. This buildup is called atherosclerosis, and it can lead to heart disease, heart attack, or stroke.

The growths may also be linked to other heart disease risks, like:
• Diabetes
• High blood pressure
• Obesity
• Smoking

What patients say about Xanthelasma Removal

What happens during xanthelasma removal?

Xanthelasma removal is a simple, quick and easy treatment. Your Xanthelasma removal begins with Dr Maini numbing the area with a drop of anaesthetic solution, which typically stings for about three seconds. The xanthelasma is then gently removed with radiosurgery, which vaporizes the xanthelasma, leaving you with minimal to no scarring.

BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE

We offer a 'Send a Picture' service with certain conditions, including Xanthelasma, which allows you to send us photographs of your condition for Doctor diagnosis. This pre-consultation enables us to give you advice on whether we can treat you and makes the treatment process easier if you are travelling to see us. At your consultation, we may be able to offer your treatment on the same day (although we prefer to have a face-to-face consultation before your treatment).

AFTERCARE

You will be given clear aftercare instructions by Dr Maini post-Xanthelasma removal and he will be available 24/7 via WhatsApp should you need advice - he will text you regularly to monitor your healing. You should not drive home after the xanthelasma removal so please come to Clinic by public transport or arrange for someone to drive you home. You will be able to work with dark glasses the following day. If this is not possible, you may prefer to take a week off work to enable you to heal. If your lesion is particularly large, healing may take slightly longer.
