Apart from obesity with bulging waistlines, double chins and flabby arms and skin, cholesterol has also been active on other areas of the body. And it may interest you to know that cholesterol may also get stored on the eyelids and nearby area. Many people have noticed cholesterol deposits on their eyelids. What exactly are they and what do they look like? A common name for cholesterol deposits under eyes and over the eyelids, is xanthelasma. To describe them, they are yellow to white colored and may look like bumps. They may also be flat shaped and may be soft to touch. Usually these are pain free deposits of cholesterol. Apart from the eyes, they can be found on the elbows, knees, soles and palms too. These deposits can be felt when you touch the skin and also can be inspected visually.
