Advance tissue Rearrangement

I would appreciate any thoughts on question below.

A physician wants to perform lesion removals and perform adjacent tissue rearrangement.
I am aware documentation must support 2 separate incisions/defects.

My question is, can ATR be billed for lesions under 1cm? Is there a "minimal" requirement?

I have research this and can not find anything. Some of these are lesions of .5cm and less.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
