Would code "56700" be used based on the following or would this be a skin tag removal? Large hymenal remanant infiltrated with 1% lidcaine after cleaning with betadine. Transected. Closed with suture figure of 8 with 4-0 vicryl.

When specific relevant code 56700 is available, then we should not try to seek a possible alternative code like skin tag removal for this procedure.
