    Default eyelid scar lysis

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need help trying to locate the correct CPT code for: Right upper eyelid scar lysis with reconstruction with full thickness skin graft. I am leaning towards 15004, 15121 & 10060 or67938?? Thanks in advance for your help

    The op report will help determine the code, but for what I see in your request, I would use code:

    67961 (Excision and repair of eyelid, involving lid margin, tarsus, conjunctiva, canthus, or full thickness, may include preparation for skin graft or pedicle flap with adjacent tissue transfer or rearrangement, up to one-fourth of lid margin).

    I saw that code but wasn't sure if it was right for this.
