    Default Dog Ears

    I am looking for the appropriate code for an excision of dog ears of the abdomen. It is a result of a personal history of cancer. I work at an ASC and I am just not certain what the code should be. Please help.

    we usually used a code for acquired deformity.

    Thanks for the help. I found my answer. We use an excision code for this. I thought it could be that but was not for sure.
    Thanks for your quick reply
