Hello,

I work for a facility that does not see a whole lot of plastic surgery cases. Patient presented with infection of right pectoral implant. This implant was removed, the area was debrided, and a new implant was inserted. Would this code the same as a breast implant exchange? Any guidance on CPT coding of this encounter would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Stacey
