Zygomatic bone (overview and processes)

The zygomatic bone (zygoma, cheekbone, or malar bone) is an irregularly shaped (somewhat diamond-shaped) paired bone of the viscerocranium. As the name suggests, these bones form the prominences of the cheeks and contour a face. The zygomatic bone defines the anterior and lateral portions of the face right under the lateral aspect of the orbit. Therefore, the zygomatic bones also protect the contents of the bony orbits and give an aesthetic look.
