Thanks for your question !!

You can report 10120-10121, depending upon the nature of procedure; simple or complex. There is no face anatomy specific foreign body removal code.

10120 represents " Incision and removal of foreign body, subcutaneous tissues; simple".

10121 represents " Incision and removal of foreign body, subcutaneous tissues; complicated ".

Thanks !!
