Default Dog Ears

I am looking for the appropriate code for an excision of dog ears of the abdomen. It is a result of a personal history of cancer. I work at an ASC and I am just not certain what the code should be. Please help.

Thanks for the help. I found my answer. We use an excision code for this. I thought it could be that but was not for sure.
Thanks for your quick reply
