Xanthelasma is deposit of fat which look like yellowish spots, flat or protruding, with a tendency to grow. They can grow on all eyelid surface, but appear more frequently around the eyelid corners.
In time, their number and size may increase becoming fastidious for the patient most of all from the esthetic point of view.
Patients with eyelid xanthoma turn to an oculoplasty surgeon when:
Depending on different cases, xanthelasmas can be eliminated through an esthetic surgery, the use of CO2 pulsating laser or through a chemical peeling.
Each patient will be guided and advised on the most appropriate and advanced surgical practices, according to the latest guidelines of the International surgical associations
The most appropriate therapy will be chosen based on the clinical history of each patient.
The CO2 laser is made so that its laser beam is directed on the established spot in a highly selective way, without touching the surrounding tissues. It represents a secure and effective method in benign skin lesion removal.
A surgical treatment of blepharoplasty does not leave evident scars because the incisions are practiced following the natural folds of the face. The esthetic results are harmonious and natural-looking.
The procedure will be personalised so to preserve the natural look, reflecting the personality of the patient and the individuality of his/her image, and to respect the needs expressed during the initial meeting
