Xanthelasma Eyelid Cholesterol Spot Treatment

London Plastic Surgeon

If you suffer from xanthelasma – those unsightly yellow spots that appear on the eyelids, treatment is now available at our private Skin Surgery & Laser Clinics.

Xanthelasma is the medical name for cholesterol spots, which can gather on or around the eye area.

Due to the proximity to the eyes, this is a procedure which is not widely available. It is rarely available on the NHS, as the condition is considered to be aesthetic/cosmetic.

Our surgeons offer surgical removal of cholesterol spots:

  • Minor surgical procedure
  • Day case – walk in walk out basis
  • May be completed at the same appointment as consultation if both parties agree and time allows
  • Stitches may not be required
  • Minimal scarring techniques
  • Pain-free procedures
  • Quick and effective, minimising the chances of recurrence

Xanthalasma Treatment Prices

  • First eyelid from £750
  • Two eyelids treated in same session from £1,250

Do I Have Xanthelasma or Skin Tags?

Xanthelasma can be confused with skin tags, so you will want to understand whether you have them or not.  Xanthelasma tend to be yellower and stick out less than skin tags.  Unfortunately xanthelasma don’t tend to go away of their own accord, which is why they need removing properly for patients who are keen to get rid of them.
