    SOOF an endoscopic blepharoplasty technique to repair ectropion, usually. Sometimes, Ptosis correction, palsy problems set right.

    Can go for:
    Blepharoplasty, upper eyelid, with excessive skin - 15823 - LT or RT;
    Repair of brow ptosis - 67900- 51, LT or RT. Endoscope CPT is bundled with this CPT.
    Commercial payors may reimburse for 99070, Endotine transbleph - C1713;

    Other way -
    rhytidectomy forehead -15824
    ectropion repair, extensive - 67917 or entropion repair, extensive - 67924, which is rare.
    Also, can try codes 15260 or 14040.

    As per the documentation can go for some of these codes.
