The procedure can be performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the condition of the patient and the type of procedure, the surgeon can make different incisions.
inframammary incision – in the fold under the breast
breast lift incision – vertical or wise pattern incision
peri-areolar incision – around the areola, and down to the breast crease
