This patient was scheduled for surgery at VMC for (B) removal & replacement of implants but she ended up just deflating the implant instead. What would be the best CPT code to use?

Thank you for your question.
Since, there is no appropriate CPT® code for deflating the breast implant, it is advised to report code 19499 (Unlisted procedure, breast) for the above-mentioned scenario.
Please feel free to write if you have any further question.
