Question:
Can we use 15777 Implantation of biologic implant (e.g. acellular dermal matrix) for soft tissue reinforcement for other tissues beside the breast or trunk?

Answer:
Code 15777 specifically points to breast and/or trunk only, as “i.e.” stands for “in other words”. Report code 17999 Unlisted procedure, skin, mucous membrane and subcutaneous tissue, if used in other tissues beside the breast or trunk.
