Exclamation Removal of cartilage tag (CPT?)

I am trying to find the cpt to code for the removal of cartilage tags (not skin tags).

The cartilage tags (or bumps) are in the preauricular area.

Thanks, in advance, for any help!

My doctor just did this on an infant and we used 69399 and sent the operative report. Good luck!
