Default Endoscopic BrowLift

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me what CPT code to use for an endoscopic brow lift? Surgeon is using an endoscope and incising down to the lateral orbital rim. He released the supraorbital rim and then suspended the lateral temporal fascia.

This just seems more involved than the 15826 or 15824....Please advise!!! Thank you!!!!
