The submental artery flap is a reliable source of skin of excellent color, contour, and texture match for facial resurfacing. This versatile flap was successfully used for various defects in 19 patients and all flaps have survived with a few minor complications: marginal necrosis, venous congestion, dog ear formation, and infection. Low morbidity and complication rates and constant pedicle diameter provide a wide range of applicability locally throughout the lower face and midface and also as a free flap all over the body.
