patient is having a 5x5 synovial cyst removed from the right anterior leg. Incision was deepened through skin, subcutaneous and through scarpa's fascia where the cyst was encountered. The cyst was excised in its entirety and subcutaneous tissues closed in layers and skin closed in running horizontal mattress suture. Would I code 11406 and 12032 or is there a better way to do this?
