Thread: Breast Augmentation Revision

  1. #1

    Default Breast Augmentation Revision

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for opinions about coding a breast augmentation revision. I have considered 19380 but this really appears to be for a reconstructed breast. I think that reconstruction is different than the original augmentation that has occurred in this case. Opinions? Thanks.

    I would use 19328 & 19340 (assuming the implants are intact)
