Malar flattening

Synonyms

Malar hypoplasia

Depressed malar region

Hypotrophic malar bone

Zygomatic flattening

Decreased size of malar bone

Underdevelopment of malar bone

Flat cheekbone

Definitions

Underdevelopment of the malar prominence of the jugal bone (zygomatic bone in mammals), appreciated in profile, frontal view, and/or by palpation. The malar process is the most medial and superior portion of the bony midface, articulating with the maxilla and temporal and sphenoid bones, contiguous with the lateral boundary of the nasal bridge. The term malar hypoplasia is no longer preferred because surface examination cannot distinguish hypoplasia from hypotrophy.
