Abstract

Wound repair after xanthelasma palpebrarum excision in the upper eyelid is a challenge for the plastic surgeon due to the difficulty obtaining tissue of the appropriate color and texture. The authors present their treatment of xanthelasma palpebrarum by an upper eyelid skin flap incorporating blepharoplasty with satisfactory results for 16 patients.
