Thread: Labiaplasty question

    Default Labiaplasty question

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a pt that is having a reconstructive labiaplasty due to a disease that caused a chronic deformity of her labia.

    CPT 56625 mentions that the physician removes part or all of the vulva to treat premalignant or malignant lesions. Does the pt have to have these lesions in order to use 56625?

    Internet research is leaning to 56625 but this pt does not have any lesions, this is for more of a cosmetic reason. Would 56625 be appropriate in this case?

    Smile Labiaplasty question


    I believe you would code this as a labial revision code 15839 Excision, excessive skin and subcutaneous tissue (includes lipectomy); other area . This is considered a cosmetic surgery. Hope this helps.
