Reconstruction questions

    Sorry, I'm a little overwelmed with all these reconstruction codes What procedure code would you use for a patient that had bilateral biopsy's done for fibrocystic disease. Now she has bilateral breast deformities. My doctor wants to use 19342 as her procedure code. Does this sound right? If so can you explain why. Thanks again.

    He's just putting in implants, and actually he decided to use the augment code.

    Thanks

    There isn't an op note yet, we are just trying to get the codes to do a pre determination letter!
