round or oval slightly elevated yellowish lesions located on the eyelids. They consist of fat deposits that have been deposited between the skin & underlying eyelid muscle. They have no significant relationship to blood cholesterol levels. They are benign. Treatment options include:
1-excision of the lesion & overlying skin with immediate suture of the resulting skin wound. If the lesion is large skin grafts or local flaps of tissue can be used to close the defect.
2-laser ablation of the lesion & the skin directly on top of it
3-skin incision with removal of fat deposits under magnification. After removal the skin is sutured.
The last option may be better especially for large deposits because skin damage is minimized to remove the fat deposit.
