A submental artery perforator flap was applied to the defect site after surgical excision of basal cell carcinoma on the right lower face. Three points were beneficial: it was perfect for assuring the safe margin of the mandibular branch of the facial nerve as well as intact platysma muscle, functionally; harvesting the flap was much easier than that of submental artery flap, surgically; and the color and contour were well matched aesthetically.
Key Words: Submental, Low face, Perforator flap
