What Are Eyelid Lumps and Bumps?

Eyelid lumps and bumps generally arise from common conditions affecting the eye area. They can appear in a range of different ways. But common appearances include as red or yellow bumps, raised skin lesions, or puffy areas around the eyes.
The most common type of lump or bump would be an eyelid stye. While these types of growths are often harmless, they can be bothersome and uncomfortable. In some cases, they may indicate an underlying medical condition that requires treatment. So, if you have noticed any lumps or bumps on your eyelids, we recommend visiting a specialist.

Will Eyelid Bumps Go Away on Their Own?

In some cases, styes do resolve without requiring treatment. For these cases, it is up to you whether you want to pursue treatment or not. However, we generally recommend seeing a specialist for an examination, so you can learn about the type of lump you have. By knowing what it is, you can choose whether to pursue treatment or not.

Treatment Overview for Eyelid Lumps and Bumps

At Dr. Peck’s office, we understand the discomfort caused by eyelid lumps and bumps and prioritize providing effective treatments that can help you look your best. We will assess your individual needs based on your medical history, lifestyle, and treatment goals to create a customized plan designed to reduce the appearance of eyelid lumps and bumps. In some cases, non-surgical methods may be enough to reduce the size of a bump or to fully eliminate it. Even if a surgical method is needed, they are often minimally invasive and prove highly effective.
For surgical removal, patients can expect to be fully comfortable with only local anesthetic. By using local numbing instead of general anesthesia, much less strain is placed on the patient’s body. This reduces any risk and shortens the recovery period even further. The duration of the procedure can last anywhere from minutes to about one hour, depending on the extent of it. Before your procedure, Dr. Peck will provide you with a full outline of what yours will look like.

After the Surgery: Recovery & Results

The recovery period after treatment for eyelid lumps and bumps varies for each patient, mostly depending on the type of procedure recovered. In general, we recommend that patients follow a few post-procedure instructions to avoid complications or infection. These instructions include encouraging patients to avoid strenuous activities and protect their eyes from direct sunlight in the immediate days following surgery.
With surgical removal, you may have some swelling for a few days up to a week, depending on the size of the lump removed. However, you will see immediate results, since the lump will have been removed during the procedure. While the results are permanent, it is important to learn about what caused the bump to form in the first place. If you have any risk factors for developing them, you may benefit from taking preventative measures.
