Do you just code for the insertion? 67912
the surgeon is opening the old incision and taking out the old weight, that was placed many years ago and inserting a new heavier one..

Thanks

Unfortunately, yes. There is no separate code for removing the intial implant. Code 67938 refers to foreign bodies such as embedded glass from auto accident, or metal deeply embedded from welding/construction that cannot be removed in the office setting.
