There is no code that describes the incision of labial ankyloglossia. You will have to use the unlisted codes.
41599 - Unlisted procedure, tongue, floor of mouth.
40799 - Unlisted procedure, lips.
Since, the primary aim of the procedure is to release the tie tongue. You may use the code 41599 after consulting with your provider.
