The xanthelasma are benign fatty deposits (cholesterol), located superficially in the skin (superficial dermis). They usually occur in the lower and upper eyelids and they form yellowish white, slightly embossed islands. They are soft, painless and have smooth and firm edges. They do not go away, but rather increase their size slowly. The xanthelasma develops and produces a cosmetic impairment, invading the surrounding tissues. The treatment consists of surgical removal (excision - suture) and is done under local anesthesia. The result is particularly good if the fatty deposit is small.
