Introduction: Anesthesia for elective Plastic Surgery procedures is generally very safe, however the knowledge of the most common and effective control are important for patient safety. The authors consider the importance of pre-anesthetic performed by team of anesthesiologist and nurses in the context of patient safety in plastic surgery because it can reduce intra and postoperative outcomes and reduce complications. The anesthesia is a new trend in improving the quality of surgical patient safety. Although cost effective and require behavioral changes is already a recommendation of the Federal Council of Medicine since 2006.The authors describe the anesthetic complications observed in Plastic Surgery over a year at Sarah Hospital Brasilia and describe the pre-anesthetic evaluation importance of the relationship between pre-anesthetic and anesthetic complications. Methods: This is part of a retrospective cohort study of hospital patients and analytical, focused on causality anesthetic complications of surgical procedures performed in the Sarah Hospital in Brasilia. We describe the anesthetic consultation routinely performed preoperatively. Results: There were 14 (8%) cases, 11 men and 3 women of 477 patients who performed reconstructive procedures between 2006 and 2007. Twelve patients have comorbidities. Major complications were hypotension and hypertension with favorable outcome. Conclusion: This study was low incidence of anesthetic complications and all showed favorable outcome.
