cpt code for labiaplasty

The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code for labiaplasty can vary depending on the specific procedure and the extent of the surgery performed. Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves altering the size or shape of the labia minora (the inner folds of the female external genitalia) or the labia majora (the outer folds).

The CPT codes for labiaplasty procedures are typically found in the range of codes 15820 to 15823. Here’s a breakdown of these codes:

  1. 15820 – Reduction of excessive labia minora (labiaplasty)
  2. 15821 – Reduction of excessive labia majora (labiaplasty)
  3. 15822 – Redundant prepuce (excess skin) of clitoris reduction (labiaplasty)
  4. 15823 – Other procedures on clitoral hood (labiaplasty)

It’s important to note that the choice of CPT code will depend on the specific details of the procedure, including whether it involves the labia minora, labia majora, or clitoral hood, and the extent of the reduction or reshaping performed. The appropriate code should be selected by the surgeon or healthcare provider based on the specific surgical procedure performed.

Additionally, it’s essential to check with your healthcare provider or surgeon for the most up-to-date information on CPT codes, as they can change over time, and insurance billing requirements may vary.
