Breast Reduction with Liposuction

Question:
If I do both a breast reduction, 19318, and liposuction of the breast, 15877, do I bill both codes?

Answer:
No – the liposuction is not separately reported. This service is included in the breast reduction code assuming breast tissue is surgically removed to support 19318.
