Actually the cholesterol is not in the coffee but as a consequence of cafestrol which is in the coffee and how the body responds to it. The paper filter takes out much of this. If one's cholesterol is very high, then I wouldn't expect this to make a big difference. You might consider all of the other possibilities.I also use a French Press, well I used to, but I have grown more fond of the Aero brew, plus, I was told that cholesterol from French Press coffee is very high and that paper filters actually help with this.
