    AAPC: Back to School
    I would really love some advice on the proper Dx for this..
    Status post Moh's excision of BCC of right lower lid and conjunctiva.
    The Doctor performed a full thickness repair of lower lid with a mycuatneous
    cheek flap.
    Any opinions would be greatly appreciated,

    Was the repair due to scar tissue? or revision due to growth?

    I sounds like this is a clousure of the defect created by the Mohs procedure which is often done several days later. We always used a code for an aquired deformity of the area, with a V10.x code for the hx of ca.
