For safety and tranquility of parents, children and the surgical team, this surgical procedure (aesthetic and reconstructive) should always be performed under general anesthesia given and supervised by a physician specialist in anesthesia and resuscitation. Local anesthesia should be accompanied by deep sedation and this is already a risk, if we remember that the child's face is covered with sterile drapes of cloth or waterproof material. If it still child moves or is uncomfortable or low oxygen saturation, we must recur to emergency general anesthesia. Finally, we should strive for the child to always keep in mind a pleasant memory of their experience in the OR.
