Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction

    Question Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction
    Medical Coding Books
    I am trying to code for a patient that is having ultrasonic assisted liposuction of the abdomen, flank, hips, and back. Is this the same as cpt codes 15876-15879- suction assisted lipectomy? I do not think so but I can not find a code for ultrasonic assisted liposuction. Any help would be great. I do not code much for plastic surgery.


  2. Default Water-jet-assistaed Liposuction
    Hi Jenny,

    I know this was an old post. Just wondering did you ever find out what CPT code to use for the Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction. Now I am facing the same question for a water-jet-assisted Lipo. Thank you very much for your help!
