Breast Surgery Coding

Here is an operative report (in part) I am abstracting and I want to know if we can bill 13101-based on the creation of the flap(s)and closure-last part of the report.
"...Lumpectomy was then performed via a periareolar incision between the 12 and 4 o'clock position. Using the neoprobe the seed was located and the breast tissue was then transected in a circumferential fashion using the plasma blade. Following removal of the breast tissue containing the seed the specimen was labeled with the superior margin lateral margin and skin edge margin and specimen mammogram confirms seed and clip. Separate margins were then taken superiorly inferiorly medial laterally and posteriorly with the side closest lumpectomy marked with a silk suture. Hemostasis was then obtained and the defect measured approximately 4 cm. Flaps were then created at the level of the prepectoralis fascia superior lateral and inferior medial. This breast tissue was then opposed with interrupted 2-0 Vicryl sutures. Clips were placed in the lumpectomy cavity. Subcutaneous flaps were then created in the wound was then closed with 3-0 Vicryl 4-0 Monocryl followed by Dermabond.
Would 13101 be appropriate?
