xanthomas are yellowish deposits of fat and cholesterol found under the skin that’s around or on the eyelids. Xanthomas are not harmful, nor do they cause any pain, but most people do not care for the appearance of these yellow growths around the eyes and often contact us to have them removed.
Xanthomas – How can they be removed?
Xanthomas can be removed at one of our minor surgery clinics using Plasma Soft Surgery. The procedure is normally carried out under a local anaesthetic to numb the area being treated, so the procedure is not painful but the eyes can be sore and slightly swollen for a few days following treatment. There will also be some crusting over the treated areas which can take around 7 days to subside. By 14 days, the skin has normally healed completely.
How much does Xanthoma removal cost?
You will first need a Dermatology Consultation in order to determine if you are a suitable candidate for treatment using Plasma Soft Surgery. Depending on the number of Xanthomas present treatment costs are from around £350.
