All breast surgeries are usually performed under general anesthesia, but in case of small breasts the surgeries can be performed under narcosis. It is possible to change the form, size and the position of breasts in the course of different operations. If the breasts are asymmetric, then one breast is reduced or augmented with an implant. In most cases with the change of the form and the position of breasts, the elongated and redundant skin is removed in order to try and preserve the original state. In those cases when the correction of small-sized, saggy breasts is taking place, then breast augmentation and breast lift is done at the same time. The owners of smaller breast need to count vertical incisions and around the areola, while the owners of bigger breasts incisions are around the areola and under the fold of the breast.

On the day of the operation bed rest is advised, and after that an additional reduced-activity period is optional, and during this time it is not advised to lean down and lift heavy objects. After the surgery it is possible to leave the hospital after one or two days, and the incisions will be removed in two weeks’ time.
