Hi Louise,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

The best code for breast revision is:

 

19380-50-Revision of reconstructed breast

 

You may choose code for fat graft from the following based on documentation:

15769- Grafting of autologous soft tissue, other, harvested by direct excision (eg, fat, dermis, fascia)

15772-Grafting of autologous fat harvested by liposuction technique to trunk, breasts, scalp, arms, and/or legs; each additional 50 cc injectate, or part thereof (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure)

 

We request you to correlate these codes with the medical record documentation. The codes may differ based on the documentation.

 

Please feel free to write if you have any question.

 

Thanks
