excisional biopsies

Sometimes when my doctors do a partial mastectomy or lumpectomy they use 19120 or 19125 instead of 19301.  If they place the preop wire themselves shouldn't they use 19125 which includes the wire? Sometimes they give me 19120 and 19290 together.  Am I just reading the description of these codes incorrectly?  Thanks.
