Xanthelasma Removal – Adelaide

Xanthelasma are flat, yellow-to-gray plaques which are normally found on the eyelids and periorbital skin region. They are a lipid-rich deposition consisting mainly of cholesterol. They do not normally cause any pain. They can range in size from two to thirty millimeters. They are flat and are usually symmetrical. They will often grow in size and number over time.

One-half of the patients presenting with Xanthelasma will have high lipid levels.  Their presence will justify a comprehensive physical examination, patient history as well evaluation of your fasting plasma lipid levels.

Xanthelasma is a benign condition that never leads to serious consequences. However, it is cosmetically bothersome to most people.  Patients that present with it, usually wish to have it removed.

Dr. Targett at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine has vast experience at removing skin lesions.  She will be able to advise you on the best treatment options, determine the underlying causes of your Xanthelasma and provide the aftercare that you deserve.
