There are two methods of performing sajda al sahw (the prostration of forgetfulness):

The Hanafi Method

When you reach the last rakat, recite at-tahiyaat till the end innaka Hameedun Majeed.

Make a single salam to the right.

Perform 2 additional prostrations (with subhana rabiyal a’la three times).

Complete your salah: Recite at-tahiyaat till the end innaka Hameedun Majeed then make dua.

End the prayer (as normal) with salam to the right and left.

 

The Shafi’i Method

When you reach the last rakat, recite at-tahiyaat till the end innaka Hameedun Majeed.

Do not do salam instead make 2 additional prostrations (while reciting subhana rabiyal a’la three times)

Both Imams Hanafi and Shafi’s method are based on evidences which showed the Prophet (peace be on him) did this.
