    Default canthus lesion with flap repair

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello all,

    lateral canthus lesion was excised...."a flap was elevated and sutured to the ordbital rim perosteum with interrupted 4-0 Vicryl sutures in the deep layers and then the subq layers were closed with interrupted 4-0 Vicryl sutures and skin closed with 6-0 Prolene sutures.\

    Enough to bill 14060 or more layered/complex repair?

    I would go with the 14060...complex is more than layered closure...ei. debridement, undermining, ligation, etc...
