Chalazion is a lump under the eyelid but it is actually a tumor and the lump can reach even greater proportions. Chalazion surgery is a quick, virtually painless procedure performed in less than 15 minutes under a local anaesthetic. It is a minor office surgical procedure. People who is having cyst are often prone to getting more in the future, either at the same areas or other areas of the eyelids
When the chalazion is very small, it can be removed through a small cut at the back of the eyelid. Before the treatment, if you have problems with your blood pressure, your heart or your lungs, everything should be under control. During the operation, local anesthetics is applied with a small injection into the eyelid which makes the area of the operation numb, Now the eyelid is lifted so that the surgeon has access to the back surface of it and a small cut of about 3mm is made just on top of the chalazion and the lump is then removed and pressure is applied for a few minutes to stop any oozing of blood that may occur because of the operation performed. In this procedure, there is no need for stitches and since the cut is at the back of the eyelid, it doesn’t show and the result will be excellent.
