What does eyelid cyst removal involve?
An eyelid cyst is usually a painless lump or swelling either on the upper or lower eyelid. It is caused by a blockage in one of the glands that supplies fluid to lubricate the edge of the eyelid.
Eyelid cysts are usually removed with Spire Cosmetic Surgery by having a minor operation under local anaesthesia. During the operation the eyelid is carefully turned inside out and a small instrument is placed over the cyst to hold it secure. The cyst is then cut and scraped away and the wound washed with salt (saline) solution.
Eyelid cyst removal normally takes about 20 minutes and is routinely performed as a day case, requiring no overnight stay.
