    Default Fat graft

    I might suggest 20926 for graft harvest, and then perhaps 19324 perhaps for the plasty...but of course, this is without reading the report?? I hope this helps. jan

    How did he get the fat? Did he perform a lipectomy using a cannula? Or did he actually cut into the patient?
