Not related: The size of your zygoma will not cause any speech issues, as they are not involved in those functions. Perhaps having some speak counseling would be more useful. Often training and practice will help you speak clearly and better pronounce your words. Speech therapists are available to evaluate your situation, and can guide you in a program to help you.

I was hit pretty hard with a wrench on what I think is my zygomatic bone no fracture but now I have issues with my sinuses. Possible the hit is cause?

Maybe (not). . .: What sinus issues are you suffering from? Perhaps, it's just coincidental. Sinus congestion is common result of allergies & pollen exposure, not to mention myriad cold viruses. See your Family Doc or ENT if no improvement w/OTC antihistamines & decongestants (assuming that you're bothered by allergies & congestion). If double vision or increase pain, then see ENT & Ophth immediately.

Fractured zygomatic/cheekbone, what to do?

Fractured zygomatic/cheekbone, what to do?

Is it displaced?: If so, see a plastic surgeon asap. If not eat soft diet for 2 wks, don't blow your nose at least not vigorously, ice sleep w head up. Surgery to repair is easy to recover from and relieves pain.

Why would it be that my fractured zygomatic bone is painless?

Why would it be that my fractured zygomatic bone is painless?

Fractures: Most fractures are painful in the first few days, and especially when muscles and joints pull on the fractured bone. The zygomatic bone is not directly involved with any joints or moving parts. Therefore if the fracture is stable (i.e. Not moving), then it might be painless. Additionally, a healed zygomatic fracture that does not impinge on nerves, muscle or blood vessels can also be painless

Is there any chances of some serious illness if my zygomatic bone is little bit bigger than the other I am little affraid, hope is no serious thing.

Is there any chances of some serious illness if my zygomatic bone is little bit bigger than the other I am little affraid, hope is no serious thing.

No worry: Everyones face is not symmetric the left side does not mirror the right. Growth patterns in facial bones vary from side to side you should not be concerned based solely on size differential.

If you have always: Had this appearance and you have no symptoms it may be related to assymetry. Most of us are not completely symetrical. If you are symptomatic - then recommend evaluation.

If my zygomatic arch is fractured do I need to do anything?

If my zygomatic arch is fractured do I need to do anything?

Usually no.: For most bones on the body (including the face) if there are not displaced and stable then they do not required surgery. Only when bones are displaced or unstable will treatment be required.

I broke my zygomatic bone, is 15 days too long to wait to have surgery? I am concerned about scar tissue, long term effects, etc.

See a doctor: There are many variables to your question. At 15 days your bones are likely stuck in their current position. This is good if they are in the proper position, bad if they are not. See a qualified plastic surgeon or maxillofacial surgeon with experience treating facial fractures for an opinion. The sooner the better.

Can a man stay conscious while being struck in head with maglite multiple times violently if he recieved fracture of the left frontal zygomatic suture?

Possibly: It's possible. It depends on the force and angle. If he doesn't lose consciousness, there's still the danger of a concussion or bleed within the skull.
