Abstract The submental flap is a pedicled island flap with excellent colour match for facial reconstruction. The flap can be raised with muscle, submandibular gland or bone and can be transposed to reach defects up to two thirds of the face. We report the primary author's experience of 25 years using the submental flap from its original description to most recent technical evolutions in both Europe and Africa.
