Thread: Implantation of weight into eyelid

  1. #1

    Default Implantation of weight into eyelid

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am having an issue finding a procedure code for Implantaion of a 1.2 gram weight into the left upper eyelid for a patient with dermatochalasis. The closest thing I can find is 67912 but it is for a correction of lagophthalmos with impalantaion of upper eyelid load (eg, gold weight). I have not found any other code for this procedure.

    dermatochalasis This is the long medical term for baggy eye lids. Why would the Dr. be putting in weights? I would like to help but I need more info.
