    Coding the xanthoma/xanthelasma removal comes down to location and size.

    If the removal of the tumor involved lid margin, tarsus, and/or palpebral conjunctiva then you are going to use the code 67840.

    If it was located just on the skin of the eyelid then it will come down to size.
    11440 (lesion diameter 0.5cm or less)
    11441 (lesion diameter 0.6 to 1.0 cm)

    Hope this helps
