I would say yes. But the claim will probably be denied by commercial payors due to the diagnosis and/or medical records.
Anytime I have a patient who has previously had a breast reconstruction for any reason and are coming back for implant exchange or are having problems and require the implant to be removed and either replaced with the same or new one I will use the 19380 and the 19340 if a new implant is placed. The 19380 covers the rearrangement, suturing or even removal of tissue within the capsule. Our docs are always going back in after a breast reconstruction and state they are doing a capsulotomy or capsulectomy and replacing the implant with one of a different configuration. 19380 and 19340 covers all of that.
