I'm not certain (our Pediatric Plastic Surgeons deal mostly with cleft lip repairs) ...
But did you look at CPT 40525? Per Encoder Pro, the lay description reads: The physician removes a full thickness portion of the lip with local flap reconstruction. A "V" incision may be made around the lesion and through the full thickness of the lip. The lesion and surrounding tissues are removed. A local skin flap is incised and advanced to the site of the surgical wound and sutured into place with layered closure.
Hope that helps.
