57415: Using a vaginal speculum, the physician removes a foreign body lodged in the vagina. During the procedure, the patient is under general anesthesia because of the patient's inability to tolerate the procedure while awake, as in the case of a young child or due to the type or size of the object being removed.
Then my encoder says:
Excludes removal of impacted vaginal foreign body without anesthesia (99201-99499)
Hope that helps!
